I have seen a picture from the past that had a cow on the roof of a house after a flood.

Not here, except in creek bottoms. If it floods my house, we're all drowned. I sit atop a hill above hollows that drop nearly 200'. Nearby areas were flooded though. School had to be called off for just one day. UPS driver said he couldn't get to half his route! Anybody living in bottom of valleys/hollows were flooded bad. There are at least 2 nearby small towns that were flooded pretty bad.

That is a lucky cow, finding something to stand on like it did. There were folks trying to rescue their animals all over this area.
The news covered people's losses in the city, but they failed to mention the farmers, horse owners, hobby farmers...etc. that lost equipment, fencing, pasture/hay and even livestock.
The water is on it's way down now, but the aftermath it leaves will be around for a while... forever for some unfortunate families.
We are lucky enough to be 'hill people', no damage here but at the bottom of the hill the destruction is phenomenal
