We've just had our third (or, Tonya tells me it's our fourth) flood for the year - nothing at all like what Louisiana is going through, but we are not at sea level. Eight inches of rain in three hours is 'way too much. No photos since I'm not set up for night photography. The flooding crested just after midnight at approximately the same level as the July 3rd flooding. Jason had planned to come retrieve his logs this weekend; and, now there are more - including planking from further upstream where some remodeling is going on. Whew!
Our drainage easement is rapidly becoming a settling ground for all sorts of flotsam. At this rate, we shan't have any grassland left in another year or two. We don't get dried out enough between flood events to get the debris cleaned out of the drainage easement between deposits. Fortunately, the non-drainage easement part of our back yard does get dry enough for me to clear away anything that I am strong enough to handle.
