On Friday night, meteorologists forecasted heavy rain during the night, and warned of possible flash floods in our area. As predicted, it stormed all night. But somehow, the words "flash flood" don't seem sufficient to describe the deluge we met the next morning. It was amazing! If I hadn't seen it, I would've never believed how high the water could get!
This is the view across the road from our barn. You can't usually see the creek from here.
With the help of some wonderful neighbors, we managed to get the sheep and the cow to higher ground before the water overtook them. This picture was taken pretty early on...the water rose much higher before the day was over.I just realized that we hadn't posted a picture of Jacob's cow, yet. Here she is. She is a Red Devon heifer named Ingrid (No, she was already named when he bought her...but it sounds like a name he'd come up with :).
Well, we don't usually have a river in the middle of the driveway, but it does add a classic touch to the out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere atmosphere.
