We had another storm come slowly up the coast this weekend, dropping a couple of inches of water on the ground saturated by the melting snow. Saturday night 45 roads were reported closed due to high water and a video clip (first seen on NBC4) made NBC Nightly News Saturday. The creek behind us floods regularly and years ago closed the road that can be seen. The state built a new bridge and raised the road and it has not been closed since.
Carroll Creek in the City of Frederick is the top of its banks, but the flood control project takes the excess water through underground culverts through downtown. The entrance to the culverts is to the right in this view.
Above is Carroll Creek flooding farmland down stream from the city, near where it empties into the Monocacy River. The poles in the water are the fences that line the private road to the farm on the far hill. Below is the Monocacy. The river is normally not visible here as its course is beyond the line of trees.
