My World Tuesday - Water and more water

Last Thursday we had several inches of rain as the storm that covered the eastern US went over us. Above is the view friday morning from our yard of the Israel Creek. Normally it is on the far side of the flood plain and cannot be seen from our house. Below is the Monocacy River not far from us. This is the place where I found the hawks on December 3 (posted for SWF).

And here is Carroll Creek near where it empties into the Monocacy. The white on the far side on the water is where the creek normally flows.

And finally, the view Saturday morning from our house of the receding water. From what I heard, no significant damage was caused by this flood in Frederick.

Even with all the water covering it, it's nice to see so much open space still undeveloped around Frederick.
