The highest I have ever seen the ragin Shellpot Creek

It has been raining all day and we still have some afternoon thunderstorms to go. Shellpot Creek behind my house is the highest I have ever seen it. I can usually gage the height by the bases of several trees on the opposite bank and those are covered now.

This picture is taken from the sun porch to give you an idea of just how close the creek is to the one corner of the house. It is about 10 to 15 ft. I am not worried because we still have 4ft of bank and several more feet of elevation above that before it reaches the house. But it sures makes noise. I have also seen many branches, a soccer ball and a few kids toys float by.

I have some video that I will post later.
