    Anyone else having flooding issues.

    With all this rain we have had a lot of localized flooding. Fortunately we are ok at the house but it took me two and a half hours to get home today. It normally takes an hour.

    This is a small creek bed that runs through our town. It’s normally dry.

    Yes indeed. I installed a second battery back up sump pump over the weekend to keep up with the rain. At one point I had my main pump, back up pump and Liberty 333 transfer pump running and the water wasn’t going down in my basement. This is a pic of my street off the main road.

    The other week when we traveled to Corolla Beach , we was very close to your location. We took Route 17 from Winchester to Warrenton on down to Newport News. If I remember at Fredericksburg , it had flooded either the weekend we went to the beach or while their, because on the way back we went down along the river (creek ) and we could see water levels had been guessing 15-20' high.
    Plus several small streams were flooded below Fredericksburg going down 17. , this was last full week in June.

    While looking at the weather this morning I noticed the entire Susquehanna river valley is in a flood warning. Bad stuff.

    I remember some years back when I was running mail in and out of New England. It was just like the past week where it rained heavily in that area for days in a row. Coming from New England to central PA where my run ended - I couldn’t get over the river anywhere. From Binghamton to below Harrisburg I couldn’t get near the river to get across.

    The devastation I saw afterward was just unreal. I hope you fair OK through this. It looks like a very similar setup to the weather coming again next week - a steady stream of heavy rain setting up from the south over the same area.

    I made the same drive through Fredericksburg on Sat to visit my Deere dealership and the Rappahannock had flooded sometime recently before because the three parks on River Rd all had silt and debris everywhere.

    I’m pretty sure that was 2011.

    I remember my relay driver had to take quite a detour to get to New England that night. Had to go west to Rt 219 North up to Buffalo then across 90 all the way into Mass to stay above all the closed roads.

    i remember 1972 when hurricane Agnes came thru--we had a lot of rain here in my area-and wind too. my dad got a lot of timber cutting out of that hurricane. bad thing oh-the tree's was on the ground. blown over-but still alive. the whole next summer we spent on them trees.

    jgayman-i was worried maybe u was in the way-watched our local news last night and they was talking about the county around where i think u live--right along the riveri am just hoping ur place is on high ground.
    ....................................
    morning-just got awake-and the sun is shining here for now. nice to see that for a change. but it's suppose to rain tomorrow again-and then next week too. as much as it's rained here--my little creek isn't high at all. guess the under ground water table needed filling

    gotta get to something. later
