Don Ashworth sloshes into his home in the Rose Hill Acres community. He placed his prized motorcycles safely on a trailer to protect them from the flood that took his garage.

The duck and goose were swimming through about six feet of water over a city street. My waders let me get into water about five feet deep. I was cool wading around chest high until I saw these hors d'oeuvres du gator.
