According to our rain gauge, we've had over 2.5 inches of rain in the past 24 hours...this is consistent with the waterdata.usgs.gov site. We did get a nice reprieve yesterday afternoon as I mentioned in my post, but since late last night, we've had ongoing rain. My least favorite part of that is I had to go into town...there is nothing like getting in and out of the car when the rain is pouring down and you have to maneuver your umbrella to try to keep yourself and the inside of your car dry! I don't mean to whine, but I do have to say YUCK!
This is the waterfall that is on the road heading to our cabin, it shows how much water is flowing...
compare it to this post from June 23rd last year. It's quite a site, isn't it?
And this is our creek, not behind the cabin, but just across from the waterfall above...it is swollen at least 3x it's usual breadth! I haven't made it to our creek, I actually don't dare, it could be dangerous, I'm not kidding you!
We are supposed to have some friends come by this evening, I sure hope they can make it. They aren't coming from far, but it may feel like they are having to wage the waters!
