Yesterday afternoon the creek had risen to up under my cabin studio deck, just a few inches from the first step up onto my deck.
At 7:00 this morning, Tom came in, woke me up and told me we were flooded! Eight inches inside the studio! Water almost up to the house! and a puddle in the basement!
At 7:30 Doug Cowie called. Tom was supposed to work at his house today. He prayed immediately and just as immediately the waters started to recede!
At 8:00 the puddle had become about an inch in the cellar, but just around the rediculous drain that's in the floor right in front of the door. (Tom says that when things get back to order he'll fill in that drain!) He waded (almost swam!) back down to the cabin studio to put my canes and charts up out of the water, rescueing my LPs while he was there.
At 11:00 we took a ride to the library and stopped at the end of the driveway on the way back to walk up to the "Little White Bridge, which if you don't pay attention, you won't notice". There's a sink hole there and some ominous looking cracks in the black top. The waters are raging under the bridge and crossing over portions of the road. Earlier Tom had placed some arrows to show where the water had been. Now it's back down much lower.
