More flooding

We've had nearly ten inches of rain in the last month, two and a half of which fell in the last twenty four hours.  Today was supposed to be a day of meetings in the big city, but no one's leaving the property anytime soon.  The video below is our driveway....

...and this is the creek where it's spilled out over the floodplain.

You could get across if you really wanted to. ;-)

Anyway, I hope this rain takes us down from moderate drought to abnormally dry..

We needed rain. Mom says you can skate when it freezes.

The waters are already receding back to the creek itself, though it is starting to snow. Guess no skating for us....

I push all the buttons but all I get is a black screen.

I still appreciate stills.

Sorry you couldn't see the videos! Mark went out with the camera this evening and might have gotten some good stills. I couldn't seem to capture the size of the flood on a still this morning!
