Bee and I drove to WV last Friday when the kids were out of school to help with a baby shower for my little SIL. As we drove over I noticed many creeks out of their banks and other places where there were ice chunks as big as my couch along banks of creeks that had since gone back to their banks. When we pulled into Mountain Mom and Grizzley Dad's place right on the banks of the Ohio River, I noticed how high the water was. While it's nowhere near the highest it's ever been, it was still way up from normal. Some of these were taken around 3:30 Friday afternoon. Then I took some of the picks on Monday afternoon around 3:30 as we pulled away from their house to come back home.
Same spot (see the blue thingy) on Monday afternoon.
Friday afternoon. There's actually a dock about 40 feet from the edge of the water and down a hill that's normally completely visible from this shot.
Monday afternoon. The dock is still way under the water.
This was taken Friday afternoon. If you look closely, you can see a volleyball net down in the water. My camera died before I could get the same shot on Monday, but the net was totally out of the water by then, and back on dry (well, super muddy) land by then.
