Heavy Rain Causing Roads to Flood

It’s a dark, rainy day here with heavier rain expected later this afternoon.  I spent a good part of the morning typing up pattern directions for Jenny Hen pillow and her companion, Rudy Rooster wall hanging.  Finished all the prep work and  we decided to go out for a ride.

  It’s bad on the roadways.  The soil in the  fields has been been frozen from our recent cold spell so all the rain we are getting is not being absorbed by the ground.  Instead it is flowing out into the roadways causing major flooding.  Here’s some photos from the end of my street.  image

The water is streaming out of the fields headed for the creek bed west of the fields.  To make things worse the drain pipes that go under the street have not been cleared so no water is going through.

The forecast is for more rain and windy conditions.  This can’t be good.  Hoping for the best. image

At least where my driveway is the flooding isn’t bad.image
