Our house and yard actually fared extremely well in the storm. We took a walk this morning and found not everyone to be so lucky. Ellerbee creek is finally a rushing (make that raging) creek and Northgate park was more like, well, Northgate pond (at least at the south end). When I returned an hour later with my camera to capture images, more then half of the water that had flooded the park had receeded, but what was left was still pretty amazing.
The south end wasn't as fortunate. As earlier mentioned, when we attempted to walk through this end an hour prior to this photo, there was no path and the water was about 6 inches deep and looked a lot like a pond.
The street and sidewalks were littered with these little guys forced down early by the rain and winds.
Ellerbee Creek was filled to the brim and looked like the chocolate river in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
