GBurg, I also lost power for 6 days during the Derecho. I have a generator, though.
The flooding could cut me off completely for a couple days. Tom might have to come on a raft to save me.
Your neighborhood is pretty damn tricky. My guess is you could be completely cutoff, unable to go right OR left out of your driveway, correct?
I know the area to your left gets several feet deep at times, but to your right can you escape?
