The crick's are a'risin' around here. There were 260 inches of snow in the mountains. We've had rain and warm temps and the snow is bound to melt. This is a repeat of the Flood of 1996 here.
This is a picture of the flood project that was built in the 1930's due to the destructive flood of 1936.
There are warnings today of major flooding.
The Narrows is the orginal Gateway to the West and consists of Wills Creek and a small road sandwiched between to mountains. I took this picture on the bank of the Creek.
Authorities were a bit more wise than back in 1996 and people have been evacuated from their homes and businesses along the bank.
When it rains it pours. That is a fact but around here when it rains, trouble ensues.
Mr. Bettis has been restricted on his outdoor antics of racing, ripping and playing due to the rain/mud. Obviously he had nothing to do and we caught him shredding the 6 month old comforter!!!! He's in trouble. He's in BIG trouble!
As destructive as he can be sometimes, this is destruction out of the ordinary.
Upon a bit of investigation we discovered the Brat (Gypsy) buried her treats under the comforter. Sissy and Gretchen kindly sent treats awhile back and they're Gypsy's favorite. She hides them everywhere and Mr. B spends a lot of time hunting them down. He's still in trouble though and is placing a desperate woof to his attorney.
