ray54 Posted January 9 Share Posted January 9 Over the past 36ish hours we are nearing 61/2 inches of rain. Rain guage was blown over so we aren't too sure of the amount. The driveway looks like a river. Lots of tree-trash blocking the five foot culvert pipe. Now for the photographic evidence. Would help if I had none flood pictures to see the old concrete chunks on the lower side. First is the dammed up water on upper side, then the top of the debe over the pipe and then as the water is spread by the old concrete pieces. And my photographer had to include me feeding the last ditch transportation in the barn. In getting close to 70 years around here the first time it has come so the water was still running big in the day time. It being 10 years or so since the creek has been up good lots and lots of small wood to block the pipe. The last time we worked on the crossing put a lot ton to 4 ton rocks on the lower side and hopefully no under cutting of the pipe. Pray for the barn as 2 sheets of metal are off and I am to stove up to go up a latter anymore to put them back. Both on the bottom of the roof on the side away from the prevailing wind. But not the disaster the news will make everything out to be. It has to have been 6 to 8 times in my life the water has been over the road, so not a climate change "thing" just mother nature give you a kick in the behind to say I RUN THINGS. 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
