Float away

Ok, we are having a heavy rain again with 2-4 inches predicted. The last heavy rain we had with the flooding to the west did not do too much here. This time I believe the ground is so saturated that we are getting quite a bit of flooding.
Here are some pictures of the bridge not too far from our house. (I had to run out to the store, and I happened to look out over the bridge. Good thing I brought my camera!)


I think that if we got more rain it would only take another 5-7 feet and it would be over the bridge. At least we are on top of the hill!

Wow... I love rain and I'm a nature child, but I have to admit that sometimes nature's fury amazes me.... be safe.

That is a lot of water. Nature can sure run to extremes-draught or flood often seems to be the case.

Hi Ulrike,

Your so lucky to be on top of a hill. You must have had a lot of rain indeed to have the water in the river so high! I hope the weather will improve the coming days. In Holland there is some rain too, but not as bad as with you!

Take care! Madelief

I hope so much the rains have let up by now Ulrike. Enough is enough! Just glad you're on a hill. We had a little here yesterday but today is bright and sunny after the first really chilly night - the tile floor was cold this morning! I can now see the trees have some color. I hope it will be pretty in the Blue Ridge - we drive up this Thursday.

Moderation in all things...especially weather! Although I don't have to worry about it where my home is, flooding is a big problem in this area. It can be so surreal.
