More Pictures

A while back, right at the end of August actually, I posted a picture of what the creek behind my house looks like on a typical Summer day. It was right before the remains of Katrina were to pass right over where I live. And the intention was that I would put up a picture of the "flash flood" that we were warned about.

Well, here's the high water mark from what was Tropical Depression Katrina.

Not too bad. I may have shrunk the picture a little too small to see it well, but the water is running at just under four feet above normal.

But on Friday, we had a series of thunderstorms roll through. It also rained for about as long as it did when Katrina came by. But this time the ground wasn't quite as dry, so there was a little more run off.

Here's a zoomed in picture where you can see that the water is running at around seven feet above normal.

And here's a look downstream from the bridge. My house is off camera on the right just past the first bunch of trees.

But don't worry, I'm on the high side of the creek. So any flooding that would happen, (and this wasn't quite a flood) would occur on the other side.

And while I'm at it, there's a little picture of a visitor I had at The Station this morning in the extended entry...

I just want to apologize now.....for my Bucs winning. ;-)

In all honesty I expect a pretty good game - but I still think we'll win!!!

*couldn't resist!*
