April 2017 Flooding

April showers went out with a bang this year!  We had tons of rain the last weekend of April and had the most flooding we have ever seen.  Our creek spread out over the hay field and made it all the way to the old chicken house.

Our wet weather creek turned into quite a river that spread into our hay field to meet the creek in the middle.  This is a picture of it from our porch, thankfully our house is up on top of the hill so we got to enjoy all the rain in safety.

The next day we took a field trip to the Beaver Lake Dam where the flood gates were all the way open, it was amazing to see all the water.

You can see the lake on the left in the background, even with the flood gates all the way open the lake was up to the top of the dam.
