eNORMOUS flooding!

This is a small 3 foot wide creek in our neighbor's yard--30 feet wide now---that creek feeds into the river below.
Below
in 2 diff. pics and angles, I am pointing at our backyard and how the river has come WAAAY up. Our house and yard are just behind those trees. Our house is high and dry. Fall Creek rose from yesterday, 1-2 feet deep, maybe 25 feet wide, to 7-10 feet deep and hundreds of feet wide---FLASH FLOOD.

Us at the bridge by our house, and below, a little downriver, super high water....

Eeks! That first picture is what our creek looks like when it swells. Thankfully it's gone back down now. No more rain!!

I just can't believe how much water there is! When will things go back to normal?

Wow!!! I wasn't worried without reason, was I?

Hugs to both you guys, and Penny and Spike and your faithful lab as well!
