The Water is Rising....

My friend Annette and I took the kids to the Creek yesterday for a quick adventure. And an adventure it was! While it wasn't nearly the vacation of my dreams, it was REALLY good to get out of the neighborhood -- and REALLY good to share the Creek with our friends!

Even if the water was a BIT high!

View from the front yard....

The lot across the street....

From the front steps. The stake in the ground is where the water line was when Pete left yesterday at lunch. YIKES! That brown piece of wood looked an awful lot like a varmint after dark last night, but that's another story for another day.

The edge of the pier is right where that water hose is hanging.


Next door....

The boat launch....









We ski under this bridge -- with plenty of clearance....


Looking up the river from the bridge....

These folks have a REALLY nice pier -- when it isn't under water....









When we left, the water was still rising and the rain was coming down really hard. It's supposed to rain another 6.5" -- at least -- in the next two days. YIKES!
