The Great Flood of 2010

Wow. That is pretty much all I can say.
Well, not really. I can always find plenty of words.
Making this short 'cause I have some things to do.
It rained. Alot. All the creeks, lakes and rivers are out of their banks. Nasty business. We had to go out this afternoon, after the water had receded a bit. We were out of hummus, and that is our go to snack and lunch (the boys love it).

Here are few things we saw (sorry for the quality, B would not slow down come hell or, well, high water):

This bridge is across the road from our neighborhood. Normally there is about 2-3 inches of water in it.

Cars submerged at some apartments.

This is close to B's office.

Also close to B's office, this is a veterinary clinic.

Road to the club's second golf course, Foxland. You can see the nets at the driving range in the distance. The road is completely washed out.

Angry Town Creek, about 7 feet, maybe, above normal.

More angry creek. But at least it is back in its banks. 3 hours before it was covering the road we were driving on.

Same Town Creek. Lots of floating debris.

This is pretty cool. This is the boat dock at the end of the parking lot at Douglas Bend Road. All the water between me and the dock is covering the entire parking lot.

Old Gallatin Bakery with a view of Town Creek in the background.

This is Gracie lake in the neighborhood surrounding our club. It is normally a gentle waterfall, now it looks like a mini Niagara.
