I'd call this a true flood! In a short period of time, we received over 11" of rain, which caused many streams and rivers to swell tremendously and become very dangerous and damaging. In our area at least 2 people have been killed, hundreds of houses filled with feet of water, cars washed away, etc. It's actually been larger than Hurricane Agnes back in '72.
That fence isn't holding any animals in!
This wasn't supposed to be hydroponic corn... Amazing how rain can change things.
You can see how high the water level was by where the debris are on the fence.
My irrigation pump was used all night to pump 3 feet of water out of the basement of the house across the water - not it's usual job!
We're taking the high ground!
