    Pamela Dean tries to move her car, which was stuck in place briefly, possibly because the wheels had become frozen after moving through standing water, as Unity firefighter Larry Curtis helps her Saturday afternoon at the end of her flooded driveway in Unity. Dean earlier drove her car away from the home as rising water from Sandy Stream, 300 yards away covered her driveway and nearly entered her home. She said she walked back to the home but called the Fire Department as water inside it rose to her knees. Firefighters arrived and rescued her from the house by using a canoe. "I sat in the canoe as a firefighter paddled and two others pulled the canoe to the road," Dean said. She said the water still was rising and she left her two cats with plenty of food and water and will stay with a friend until the water recedes. "In the last three weeks I ran out of heating oil, my battery went dead and now this," Dean said. "I may sell my home as waterfront property and move to Florida," she joked. She added that she is grateful for the help of firefighters. "They were wonderful," she said.
