Day 112 - After the rain

The low land on the farm behind us regularly floods when we get several inches of rain (4.5 per the Frederick Airport reports). Israel Creek is on the far side of the flat land beyond the first tree line and flows into the Monocacy River a little ways to the right of the picture. The second picture shows the Monocacy about 2 miles down stream and definitely out of its banks, though not flooding any housing or business areas. Some roads were closed and a few people rescued who drove into the water. See Marianne's post for photos of last year's flooding in the same general area.
