My normal path to work is closed because it is now part of the great miami river.
Other than that generators were scarce for a week during the 3/4" of ice on everything, which brought down the trees, power lines, etc.
Because of our house's location, we haven't been affected directly--but if we try and go up to Marietta, it makes life interesting. A few friends up in town (driveline shop, tattoo shop) got hit really bad back in the Sept floods, this one wasn't quite as bad
The local paper has a pretty good pictorial of the 2 floods; you can check it out here:
The little town I'm from, Lower Salem, has been hammered by the SEpt. and Jan. 05 floods. My wife and I were down there a few weeks ago to lay a grave blanket on Mom and Dad's grave, we stopped at the house I was raised in and I left feeling down. Buildings and houses are gone. I lived there till I was 17 and never saw such flooding like the flooding recently. We lived right on Duck Creek and when the Ohio and Muskingham rivers are up, Duck Creek has already flooded due to the hills feeding it. I hope '05 is dry.

I know Bolivar area is under water. Friend lives there. He is on the high side of expressway so he is okay, but the east side of highway(Rt 77) is under by like 6ft. A canoy livery has a couple school buses and they are darn near UNDER water. New Phila and Dover dam's are being let out to try to save them from letting go, so all the surrounding rivers are WAY over flood stage. They are talking end of week before travel by a "wheeled" vehicle.
