Floods and Mud

A huge bit of self-indulgence and an explanation--- offering apologies for this.....

We live near the Conodoguinet Creek (Most rivers in Pennsylvania are referred to as Creeks) .
As you can see, our house sits uphill and over looks two small hayfields. A road runs thru the fields and it is an easy walk to the Covered Bridge.

Once in awhile the Creek jumps its banks and floods the hayfields--giving us Lakefront property. This may last up to 24 hours----LOL
and leaves a patina of mud on everything.

V2 will show the receding flooding. You can piece out the road, and the great (temporary) falls near the bridge.

Floods can be a terrible thing for families wiping out years of memories with lost possessions, thank the lord you were on the hill, the reflections are excellent Jenn, a cracking capture.

We watch with fingers crossed--- mostly hoping that no one tries to cross the fields in the dark-- (Can't see the road).

Also, there is a concern that a major flood might take out the antique bridge---one of only a few left .......

not likely to get close to our house!

Thankfully your home is up quite high. It looks lovely down by the creek but it can be dangerous when the water is high.

You have a wonderful house in a spectacular setting, love all the trees... So sad that the floods destroy so much...it has however given you this temporary lake with beautiful reflections. V2 is an amazing scene, hope you all keep safe...

Jenn, don't apologize for these. The shots and accompanying commentary are fascinating -- and a bit frightening to think of how close you come to be flooded out.

I used to live in a small village by the river Meon in Hamphire. Winter of 1989, it burst its banks and flooded the village. Once the water recedes, mud everywhere,took months to dry out. We moved. Your lucky to be on high ground, so enjoy the view. Good images of nature at work. Peter.

So glad you are up on a hill!
The floods have given you a photo opportunity but maybe one you could live without!
Great photos of interest to us all.Funny I always thought a Creek was just a little stream!

On good thing about the flood plains, it leaves behind some wonderfully fertile soil.
Hope you don't have to depend on this road for getting to and from your house.

Joline beat me to it, exactly what I was thinking. Good job the house was built high enough to avoid being water-logged, Jennn.
