... and the creek do rise...

What we needed more than anything, was a long, slow thaw...
What we got was about 2" of rain in 3 days,

which hurried up the melting

which broke the ice and caused Turtle Creek to rise about 6' overnight.

These ice chunks will probably flow into the James River, which is already at flood stage in many towns (though not mine). Things are going to get interesting, I think.

But, the sky is blue, for the first time in weeks. And spring is on the way.

I see green. I see green. I heard there are ice jams on the James in Davison county.
