During the rain

It has rained almost 3 inches in the last 24 hours!  At times today the National Weather Service reported that it was raining at a rate of 1/2 inch per hour and it issued flash flood warnings.

I went out for a few quick pictures in the late afternoon to document the event.  These images are from a small stream that usually supports just a slow trickle of water.

Looking upstream:



Looking downstream:



Next to the stream bank:



And an audio clip so you can hear what this stream sounded like.  Listen for the combination of a low background roar as the water tumbled and rushed by and bubbling and gurgling sounds here and there.  (Turn up your volume.  And if you're reading this in an e-mail, click on the title of the post above to go to the website to access the sound file.)
