We went for a drive this afternoon to take a look at the flooding. Yeah, we’re nosy that way. We were also trying to find an alternate route for me to go to work in the morning so I don’t have to wait in line to drive one at a time through the water standing on the highway(See earlier post). We encountered many roads that were closed so I would either need to go 8 – 9 miles west or 8 – 9 miles out of my way to the east so it looks like tomorrow morning I’ll be waiting in line.
Below are a few more flood pictures. For most of you, the road names will mean nothing but for the locals who read my blog it will help them place where the pictures were taken.
Most of the corn is over 7 feet tall right now, so you’re looking at approximately 6 ft of water in the field.
The bridge on Carter Road behind Lake Carroll. The creek here is usually 8 foot wide and nowhere near as deep as it is now.
Most places you could see where the water has already started to recede.
