We are being flooded. You have seen this in a few of my recent posts, and there are all sorts of pics on FB. Most people are safe, but some have had to leave their homes, and one area by the lake has been hit quite hard.
There are many pics in our local FB groups, but few have been from near our neighbourhood, so I decided to remedy that.
The park just around the corner has a permanent runoff pond, but it has more than doubled its size. The flooded tree in to the left normally stands on a little dry peninsula.
Across the little footbridge, the path on which we normally tread has been obliterated.
Since I could access the Riverwalk Trail from the park. I decided to try from two other points. I didn't get very far.
There are sandbags by the seniors' residence although I think they are just an ounce or prevention as I don't think the water level will rise that much. Better to be safe, though.
Further along the path, the boardwalk, which is normally easily high and dry, is partly flooded.
As I write this on Thursday, I see that more heavy rain is in the forecast. Hopefully, most homes will remain well protected.
