Originally, the main flow had been on the far side, with a large Delta in the middle & a lesser flow - on the same side as the property. In November of 2014 - with weeks of heavy rains - things started getting Very Scary! The course of the river started to change.

It was - at least until our first big rain maker of this season. The kids are still trying to negotiate with their bank & also with the County. The County has said that they would only red tag the house if the river came within 150 ft. With the big storm we had last week, the river levels reached 12 - two feet higher than it takes to crest the banks. Crest it did, taking away the last acre of trees & buffer between it & the backyard of the house.
Jentry asked me to go up to take a look & get some photos. It was incredibly scary to come in the drive & see the river! I paced off the distance from the corner of the house to the river & came up with just about 100 ft.
