We had over a foot of rain late Sunday into Monday. The lightning and thunder woke us up in the night, so we got up to watch the creek as the heavy rains continued hour after hour.

This was taken Monday afternoon just before the second flood! The creek is rising here. It took no more than 30 minutes of heavy (but not as heavy as the previous night) rain for the creek to spill over its banks.

Where the playfort used to be. The bridge is also gone.

The creek becomes a river!

Where the playfort ended up!

Oh my! When you said you had a river...I didn't even imagine that.

Oh wow. I've been wondering about your creek and been unable to get online to check on you. I'm so sorry. But yes, at least your house is dry.
