The Rain Came Down and the Floods Came Up

We had SOME rain last evening.  The ground water rose very quickly.  My husband had trouble getting home. He was in the city and some of the streets were like rivers.  I shot these photos between downpours. There is a little creek that runs to the south of our house and under the roadway.  These pictures are looking across the street from our house at the creek where a trickle of water is the norm. 
The water was moving extremely fast.
Our house had a little water in the basement but the sump pump took care of that.

  1. May Post Office road was the worst Warren has ever seen it. We were coming home after dark and it was very scary. Sounds like a repeat for this evening....bummer.
