New Year Floods

After spending many days inside recovering from my cold and watching many college football games, I needed to get out for a while. I loaded up the dog drove to Orchard Park to check Rock Creek's water level. We received several inches of rain yesterday and last week's snow is still melting, so many area rivers are above flood stage.

Rock Creek is apparently no exception.

Some snow fell last night, making for a slippery walk.

The boardwalk that crosses the creek was submerged, so we could not complete the trail's loop.

It looks like more rain is on the way and we are back to normal winter weather.
