After the Deluge, the Valley Recovers
As a thunderstorm approached from the west yesterday, the sun was already drying out the remains of eight inches of rain. The slow moving weekend event brought rivers over their banks, while mud and rock slides closed major east-west roads between here and Asheville.
The pond down through the woods was out of its banks as a swollen Otter Creek flooded the low areas. That same area was the subject of a sunset video just a few days before the storm. The changes are striking.
