Ok – a quick review…
- On August 23rd, Jacob’s Creek experienced a flash flood after the watershed received nearly three inches of rain in about two hours.
- By the next day, things seemed to be back to normal.
- But because the ground was still saturated, Jacob’s Creek flooded again five days later when we received another three inches of rain. During the second flood, the wall beside the waterfall collapsed, having been weakened by the first flood.
Sometime during this past weekend, the waters once again subsided to “normal” levels, but the ground is still really wet. Thankfully, we don’t have much more precipitation in the forecast.
Today, I went out for another set of “after” pictures and video. Alas, this “part 2” isn’t quite as pleasant as the last “part 2”, due to the challenges we now face with the wall.
A tour of the “destruction”…
