2019 Russian River Flooding

It has been about a month since we had to evacuate our town due to the massive flooding on the river and I thought I would post some images of the clean up.  Our house was fine thankfully but we took in about two feet of water in a storage shed that held many of my collages amongst other items.  Several pieces were destroyed and you can see from some of these pictures the damage sustained in our area.
