    Today's noon news on TV showed rushing creeks and a few low lying neighborhoods that were flooded in the Portland, Ore. area. :eek: The "very heavy rains " that was to be around for most of the day started to fizzle after 7 AM to just above a drizzle. My back yard hand dug pond ( all of 10 -12ft diameter and 3" deep due to the hardpan and lined with 1-2 inch round river rock almost reached flood stage like about within 1/2" of running out of bounds. The meandering hand dug stream from the pond to the front sidewalk had 3" deep water for about 30 feet. I dug this pond and stream as a drainage for our backyard as well as serving as landscaping feature so it saved us from a historic flood and the need to be rescued by an arc. :bow :caf

    @bobm I’ve stopped the plowing out of our heavy 1” snow to start on the arc to save your area. Again, it will take a while as I look on internet to find & purchase gopher wood. Then, I must translate the dimensions to current.

    Wonder if I can rent the arc in KY? I will get back to you on that. Continue to work on floating techniques.

    On this morning's TV weather news ... to your horror the " very heavy rains " we had yesterday has now being reported as a DELUGE . :th To prove this point, they showed an areal view of the low lying area of town where the creek that always floods no matter how much rain falls has overflown it's banks. Horror of horrors there are quite a few homes surrounded by flood waters. :epSensational journalism at it's finest. :he That is, IF you can claim it to be journalism. :rolleyes: :lol: :lol:

    Judging by the volume of water flowing down our street gutters ... This morning we had 3 1/2 hours of rain that had heavier amounts of rain falling than the DELUGE of the last storm. :hu Surprise ... NO mention of this factoid on today's noon TV news as the weaterete had only predicted a drizzle for this morning. :thMore of the same was predicted for the next few days and NO snow here for under 2,000 + ft elevation . :frow

    in looking at the daily update for selected CA reservoirs it looks like they picked up about half a million acre feet of water in one day. that's a nice storm for them. looking to be a good water year for CO and UT too...
