The "dry creek" out back was as high as we've ever seen it the last few days. It was really fast too. Glad we didn't have to go anywhere and we have an alternate route if we had to go out.


Typically looks like this


Here's what it looks like after an inch or so of rain

The last couple of days, we couldn't even see those large rocks and it was probably 50 feet wide. We live on the uphill side and the house is set up so flooding is not an issue although we do keep an eye out for debris that could cause a flood. It's also a FEMA flood zone so any nearby development can't add to the run off.

Hi rock_oak_deer_water ... LOL.

WOW -- how nice to have a mostly dry creek bed that you can see from your house. It is very picturesque!

I love to go walking in the dry creek bed near me that becomes a raging torrent when it rains a few inches. Incidentally, I found out after my boys were grown that they used to ride inner tubes down it when they were teens. Thank goodness they survived! And good for them I didn't find out sooner!

Thanks for the photos!

RE How much?

By the way, how much rain did you, and other people, get from Hermine?

We got six inches here.

RE: Hermine

Hey, S...

Have been trying to reach you....have you gotten my emails ? They were sent privately, not through GardenWeb. Maybe they went to your junk folder ?


RE: Hermine

What a wonderful view and you're lucky about the flood plain -no development
