We are getting a little break in the action, but more heavy rain is expected the next several days, possibly out to next weekend. Right now some of those flooding rivers will get the chance to go down a bit, but any more rain like the past few days, and they'll be right back up again.
There is something to be said for being up high on a hill, believe me!
Temperature going up (love that temperature graph!) and the rain comin' down. That rainfall amount is from about 2 pm when it really started
Tuesday mid afternoon. Snow starting to really melt now, as it's lightly raining
Dale's insulation job on the one side of the garage/shop held its snow load very nicely compared to the uninsulated roof of the other side
This morning, looking SE at the Nusbaum's pastures/hay fields. That's all water, as far as you can see, where there shouldn't be any
Looking east down Dawson Road. The water had receeded quite a bit by this time. The Nusbaum's pastures are to the left, and the furtherest one you can barely see is almost completely under water
The corner of the barn trying to escape. Dale came out with portable drill and screws and put it back together again. Turned out that it had no screws in it at all, which makes it a wonder it lasted as long as it did
A perfect shot of a perfect rainbow (and some of our ponds in the pasture)
Don's new lake in his north pasture
Looking south on Foster Road towards Don's place. This water was quite deep and really moving across the road
Sybil poses at the corner of Don's flooded pasture. Given the opportunity, she would have gone swimming, however I didn't want to have to give her a bath, so she had to stay on (semi) dry land
This is Don's pasture north of Oliver Creek. That's part of Oliver Creek left of the fenceline. Normally, it would be well to the left and not visible from here
This was a cool shot of the muddy, swirling waters of Oliver Creek where it met the stagnant water from the pasture and ditch. It flowed like this while we stood and watched - muddy on one side, relatively clear on the other
Nusbaum's new lake to the left
Neighbour's flooded home
Mark, this is the house that was a foreclosure, next door to the flooded house. The water only reached the garage portion. Now, aren't you glad you didn't buy it after all?
Nusbaum's new lake. Not sure that fence will do much to keep the fish in/out
Back to Oliver Creek again (I switched cameras). It's normal course is to the left of the trees that are to the left of the fence
