The FLOOD GATES

The trip back yesterday from OBX was not uneventful . Well, let’s say most of it was, the first 10 hours, perhaps. Problem was, it’s a 10 1/2 hr. trip that took 12. What happened, you ask.

It’s simple. In the final hour it rained six inches . Sorry, that should be an exclamation point. That is a huge volume of water to fall in a very small fraction of time !! The Flemington/Raritan area took the brunt. It couldn’t help but flood . And flood it did !

It’s risky business when all you can do is estimate the depth of the stream running across the road. We chickened out in a few spots.

It took a while, but we made it home safe and sound, not wishing to ever experience this again.
