Flood Debris

Post by Ceropegia » Sun Mar 06, 2016 10:44 am

The creeks that border my property flood after extremely heavy rain. This does not occur often, many years, not at all, but in the past few months it has happened several times. After each flood I am always amazed at some of the debris left behind. Once I found an entire fishing rod and reel. The first two images are things left behind last week, the last one, a month ago. Both these times the larger creek which is normally about two feet deep reached almost twelve feet deep. Within a mile of my property is a USGS real-time creek monitoring station on the larger creek. I can go on line to find out how fast the creek is flowing and how deep it is, which is great for telling if/when the creek has left its banks because I cannot see the creek from my house which is located quite high up in the woods.

Failure means you tried. Success means you need to set higher goals for yourself.
