a FLOOD! and other things....


( Campbell Meadow Park down a ways, Yogi on the bridge by our house)
WHOA! Enough rains, alright?
We have seen worse floods, but by inches this is one of the worst.  We have a small river behind our house called Fall Creek, about 2-5 feet deep and about 20-30 feet wide usually.  It came up several feet and hundreds of feet wide in spots yesterday, and my neighbor took a pic of the new park down the street by the riverside:  water going OVER the grill and picnic tables...it rose higher still, until the flood crested about 7 pm on a finally crystal clear evening.
Below:  Yogi came exploring with me... behind him is the riverbank at my backyard!


The bend in the river there at the right is directly behind our house.  No water got close to us. We are pretty high.


In other news, Tiffy likes my cow over moon sculptures...and wanted a set!  She got laughing dog and now.....in progress......
have a great Saturday!

Glad that you and yours are okay and not living on a raft.
We had torrents of rain and wind here too. I am so glad I drove back from Laconia, NH on Thursday instead of staying another day. The storm broke one of the hoses on the pool pump and filter....oh fun!
You have grown some sunflowers this year.

I'm so glad you're doing Cat & Fiddle etc...those are the best images I've seen, and I know will continue when glazed. Fall Creek looks like it really was wallowing.

You're high and dry; that's Good! Sorry for the poor folks in lower elevations.

That's the cat and the fiddle! That's going to be a masterpiece of a set.
