The last picture was taken from about where Randi was standing in the second picture, and shows the view across the road and canal. I drove the car in because I had groceries and had honestly not expected the water to be quite so high. By the time I got done unloading the groceries, the water was high enough that a bit came in the car when Randi opened the back door to get in. I moved the car and braved the storm on foot to get back home. The wind and rain were extremely unpleasant, and we were soaked within minutes, but certainly not impossible to negotiate. A couple of times, Randi had to stop because she was unable to make headway against the wind.
Sadly, only one person of the dozen or so who passed us stopped to ask if we needed a ride (she lives behind me and stopped to tell us the water was rising fast -- she offered the ride when I told her I'd already moved my car). By the time we got back to the house, the water was up to my knees.
We never lost power, but it kept going out and coming right back on, so I turned everything off and we went to bed early. I was a little concerned how high the water might rise, low tide was around 12:30, and when we went to bed at 10:00 or so the water was still over the bottom porch step. But the storm passed and must have took the water with it. I woke up multiple times through the night and after 2:00 or so, the water started receding fairly rapidly.
