    Been raining here all day due to the remnants of the hurricane! Supposed to rain clear thru till Friday! Ma just called from work, the roads are starting to wash out in places! Tomorrow might not be a good day if the cricks keep rising! Glad this didn't come this past weekend!

    Sure feel for you guys down south that got 12 inches plus! We are only supposed to get 6 to 8 inches!

    Springers can swim they have webbed feet, but I do worry about here going near the crick when the water is this high! I will keep a close eye on her the next couple of days!!!

    Tim, It rained here today like the proverbial "cow pissin on a flat rock"!!! I've had over 8 " since yesterday and this AM it rained over 1" in 30 minutes!!! The fields are bare and the combination of the wind and the water had them wavering like looking at a field of wheat or grass looks with the wind blowing it! Wish I'd had a video to take pics of it! My driveway has 1' gulleys in it!! There is probably 3-4 tons of gravel that washed out at the mailbox that is all the way across the state road to have to be scraped back! It will take me all day tomorrow to get the driveway back to "drivable" again!! (The driveway is over 1/4 mile long!!!!) We missed the big wind(so far) that was predicted!!! BUT WE GOT THE WATER!!! I saw water in places today that it hasn't been since 1985!!!! 1985 was the "Big One" for us!!! Hope y'all don't get it!!! Later!!! Charlie (GHD)

    Guess I'd better check the weather reports for the rest of the week. Normally I stick to looking at the sky. If it's coming down at me, I figure I'd best put on a hat.

    Been sitting here over an hour and the sump pump hasn't shut off yet. Looks like the week following labor day will bring what the week prior to memorial day did. A flooded basement!I may take a partial day off and go get a spare sump pump to be safe.

    Hey Pa,
    Keep you eyes peeled for land on top of hills. No more valleys or flatlands for me. I'll take water running down hill and wind in my hair any day.

    Just sign me;
    Woods the 3 sump pump man!

    Well, at least it's giving me a chance to finish cleaning these guns. Can't get out to the jacuzzi, so I'm working on the last one now. ;)

    It's flooding pretty good up this way.I've never seen the creeks around here get so hi so fast since 1976,the year we moved here.I drove around town this afternoon and along with overflowing creeks,there was a major watermain break just before rush hour.
    Just my observation,but do only stupid people come outside during floods and stand next to creeks with torrents of water rushing past them.I like to look too,but every year some one drowns in these same creeks during snowmelt.
    I'm afraid to drive out to our gun club and see how much water leaked into the building.We have been slowly digging out a drainage ditch to get the water away from the building.i have a feeling it will be wet.

    As I was saying about people getting too near the edge of the creek when it floods.A toddler up here was washed away and they found him a few miles up stream.It's unfotunate that these thing happen every year.Water is very underestimated as what it can do. :(
