Here is a shot of the raging torrent that was Shellpot Creek behind my new house on Saturday morning. This is what the normally babbling brook looks like when you dump an inch or two of rain overnight into it. Apparently it was even more raging earlier in the morning before the rain stopped.
The water came no where near up the bank so the house is safe. It is almost hypnotic to look at, and very loud. That is fine by me, as long as it stays in the creek where it belongs.
