FloodingPosted: May 29, 2016
We are experiencing our second flood since April 18th, the Tax Day Flood. Our closest river and lake are out of their banks. The photos are of the greenbelt that winds through the wooded areas of our community. The black paint on the path marks the way to two different streets.
This is the view looking straight down the path.
And this is to the left. The overflow is from the lake which is man-made from damming the river. No walks through the woods today. This greenbelt is less than two blocks from my house. We are high and dry, but not everyone is so fortunate.
Here are the stats. Friday it rained 7.6 inches. This past week we had 11.36 inches making the amount since April 29th to be 15.32 inches of rainfall.
And as of last May 29,2015, 72.48 inches of rain has fallen. These readings are from the county rain gauge closest to the neighborhood. Our drought is definitely over!
