Road Closed

Flooded Road at Creek After a severe thunderstorm early Sunday morning, we drove around so that I could take some photographs. We drove to the creek and found that it had flooded the road. We had to stop the truck about 30 feet from where the water met the road, due to the silt and mud that had been left behind from where the water had risen.

As we walked to the edge of the water to get a closer look, the mud clung to our boots, making nearly impossible to walk in the slippery stuff. On the exposed road, there were muddy lines showing where the water had been and the grass that got caught in the torrent was now laying down instead of standing up. It was amazing to see just how high the water had been just a few hours earlier.
