Last week the total rainfall measured in my rain gauge was 6.2 inches/15.7 cm. One of the days the total for twenty-four hours was three inches. It stopped raining about noon, and by the time I got home from work and got down to the creek with the camera, there was less water than I expected.

The bluebells had been underwater.

You can see how the grass has been combed in one direction by the current.

There's still plenty of water. Most of the time there are more rocks than riffle.

Here's the standing water left in the field.

The debris indicates the water was moving fairly fast.

I'm glad the house is far uphill from here.
