Hard Rain Gonna Fall

We've been hit by the strong weather system that is moving across the Midwest. It has dumped over 6" of rain since about midnight (13 Jan 2007). This picture is of Little Bouldin Creek, the creek that runs behind our house. This view is looking upstream from Cumberland, which is just downstream of our house. Our house is on the left (high) side of the creek. Normally the creek has at most a trickle.

There is no danger of us flooding (the houses on the other side would all have to be under about 4 feet of water before we would be in any danger) but this is as high as we've seen the creek since we bought the property a couple of years ago.
