The reason for the flood was two fold. The first being a torrential rain storm which followed several days of really hot weather and the second was snow melt caused by that previous really hot weather.
These things (floods) never happen during the day - always at night when its difficult to see if you've lost a kid in the current.
That's not snow that you see but a foam created from the currents mixing up the debris.
It's like the frappe setting on your blender.
Drive across or walk across?
(FYI - I drove over it)
In its place was debris coming from all houses upstream.
I'm sure this year instead of clown poppies I will be getting burdocks and other equally nasty weeds.
Someone will be annoyed to have that left on their lawn.
Yes, that's my car. The water had receded enough that I could drive down the road when I came home at 1:00 in the AM.
Part of the driveway had washed away so I walked across the bridge.
I could see the planks so I knew it was safe to walk.
Still a bit of water trickling down the road but the district crews, firemen and neighbors did a great job of removing the blockages and sandbagging the low spots.
I spoke highly of them while warm and dry at Ladies Night.
