High Water at HHR

This entry will only mean something to my friends and family that have been to the ranch.

We are still in Missouri waiting for this massive storm to clear the Midwest. We have measured almost 6 inches of rain here at the ranch. We had one last line of thunderstorms come through this morning and now it is turning colder. It looks like things are winding down.

Kim and I took a ride down to the creek to see how high the water was. I have seen it higher once before when we got hit with the remnants of hurricane Ike, but this is pretty impressive.

The pics are a little fuzzy, but the video is pretty clear.

This is the end of Lava, looking over the falls:

Here is a short video I made of the creek:

It looks like we are going to be able to depart on Tuesday and get headed south. We are so glad that we stayed through Christmas. It was great to have all of our kids together. That is getting more rare as we get older and they get busier with their own lives.
