I had visions of June 2008 on Saturday as the rains continued all day and into the night. I have a rain gauge that registered 4.5 inches. I think the only thing that saved us from more serious flooding was that it was a more gentle rain and spread over a longer period of time. I watched and expected the water to go over the docks today but it seems to have held steady at 3-4 inches from the
top of local docks. The north end of Sweetwater is muddy appearing...all roads to Nashville were impassable on Saturday night. Thanks to neighbors who moved other neighbor's dockside belongings to higher ground. It's been "interesting" in recent weeks.....straight line winds, ice, snow, flooding, etc......what's next?!
