Seasonal Flooding

We live in an area that is prone to some spring flooding, as well as other times.  With heavy rain and melting snow over the weekend, these pictures show what was  across the road from my house Monday morning, on a flat area adjacent to Oneida Creek.  This creek is the boundary between two counties as it flow through my area.

This last view is from our front porch.  The red house sits at the top of a hill, and it looks as though the flooding might be at their back door, but the hill is high, and I do not think they ever have any problem with flooding coming into their house.

Normally, Oneida Creek is a rather quiet, gentle flowing stream, but when it rains, look out\!  All the area in this above pictures should be creek in the rear, low, flat land in the foreground!  We are also above the creek on another hill, safe and dry.

  3. This is a very interesting perspective on the flooding. I liked your photos and the way you expressed yourself, too. It does seem like the creek is going to invade the red home! I am so glad you are safe and dry!
