If you don't live in the South or catch much in the ways of the evening news, it's easy to be out of the loop when it comes to the devastation that tornadoes and flood have caused. There are thousands of people without homes and there's also a group who are fighting for their structures and attempting to give Mother Nature the proverbial finger. Would you do the same? How far would you go to save your house?

In my own home, I've never been very attached to many things. They could stay or they could go, but what's obviously the most important are my family and pets. That said, I don't think I'd really want a giant wall of water taking over my property either.

There are some stunning... just stunning photos over at the Daily Mail Online that have been compiled and play witness to just a small part of the flooding that's still happening in the Southern part of the United States. They're enough to make you stop and think and truly wonder about what you would do if faced with the same circumstances.

It's easy to say you'd just walk away from it and rebuild. The reality of that situation however, when all your neighbors are encountering the same things you are can be a little tricky. The hotels are full, roads are blocked, cars are underwater and the waiting line to talk to insurance is ridiculous.

What would you do? Is it better to be prepared and take a stand or grab your photo album and some dog food and head for the hills? Share your own thoughts below!
