Garland and Brenda Wayne were trapped in their home near Lake Shelby by the floodwaters of Clear Creek Tuesday morning after a storm dumped more than two inches of rain on the county. But Brenda wasn't worried.
"We have plenty of food back here," she said. "We'll just wait it out."
The Waynes are assistant caretakers for Lake Shelby. The water from Clear Creek covered the road back to their house and the house of Bob Dennie, who is the caretaker for the lake. Wayne estimated the water was as much as 4-5 feet over the road.
