It rained here a day or two ago. I know what your saying. It always rains in Ohio, so what's new?!

You don't understand. It REALLY rained here a couple of days ago.

The still photo is a pic of a small brook which runs right through the historic sites here. The little trickle you see is actually a bit larger than what it sometimes is.  It is spring fed and so never runs dry, but most of the summer it is just this gentle little trickle of water running over the stony bottom.  Thus it's name, Stony Brook.

That is, it is like that most of the time. But not all.  The video shows the same section of the 'brook' after one of our major rain storms here, though this was a bit worse than most. We've never seen it quite this full.  There is about ten feet of bank there. It was lapping at the bottom of the bridge I was taking this video from. Through most of its length, it was full to the very top of its banks.

The rain continued for two days and so did the level of the creek.

Holy cow that's a lot of water. Send us some rain. I am getting bored with the weather. We got a teeny bit of rain today though.

The video didn't work. I haven't been able to get videos to work for quite some time on blogger. Bummer!
