The creek below our house flooded our road again tonight.
These photos were taken in early August, just after the 2nd flood we had on Saturday, July 22nd. The first happened on June 28th. If you care to see those pictures you'll find them in the June archives.
Earlier in the evening we looked out into the dark night and saw flashing lights on the corner. There was a fire truck and several other vehicles, and men marking the road with flares. I felt sorry for these men having to be out in the pouring rain on this very black night. The deluge of rain lessoned for a while and after a couple of hours the waters receded,
For a good part of this spring, summer and fall, it has run much faster and had far more water in it than usual.
This is where it comes out of the culvet on the other side of the road. Tomorrow I'll take my camera and go see what it looks like after this night's flood.
