No help in sight

We awoke to flooded streets on Sunday. On Monday the water had just risen. We called the city and were told they would "put us on their list." Currently the water in front of our house is 19 inches deep. We have been stranded at home all day, since we don't have a vehicle we can drive in this. My wife has been sick since Thursday and thinks she now has an ear infection. She can't get to the doctor. We can't get to the store. How long is a reasonable time to expect us to wait?

As a city employee who was more than likely in your neighborhood, All I can say is that allot of problems from flooded neighborhoods are not always solved right in front of your house. Merry Christmas

I like around the corner from here. I can't believe the city can't do something! We pulled our cars out just in case, although we can still drive the truck through this.
