I was 6 , baby brother born with eye problems. We were in margate between the ocean and bay. Firemen went down the street in rowboats. Water up to the door Surprised my mom didn't have a nervous breakdown
After the water receded, I pushed a rabbit out of the crotch of a wild cherry tree.
The tree was the only place it could find to rest after swimming for hours in the waist high water next to our home at the end of Leeds Ave in Pleasantville. From the second floor I could only see water to the east. Even one side of the railroad had washed away.
