"I used to like to see it rain. I don't anymore. We have to put up with this and go through this and stress out of it and it's an expensive situation," said McNeely.
When the water fills up in the nearby Fourche Creek, it spills over onto the yards east of I-430 on Stagecoach Road. Because this area is in a floodplain, McNeely pays more than $2,000 a year for flood insurance. Insurance, though, doesn't cover everything.
"I love my home and this weekend it was so beautiful. All my flowers blooming the landscaping was all pretty I was so excited," McNeely said.
There's not maintenance issues that would have an effect on these areas," said Ronny Loe, assistant director of Little Rock's public works department.
Loe showed us the area on a map. Four creeks meet here at the Fourche, which eventually flows in the Arkansas River.
Channeling the water elsewhere could cost millions and perhaps not even fix it so the federal government would likely offer to buy the property from the owners.
"If there's something we can help them with we certainly will but we will guide them through that process," Loe said.
That may be Diane's next option.
"I stress out. I stay awake all night, waiting to see if I need to move to my vehicles which I did today," said McNeely.
