Torrential Rain along the Blue Ridge

Storm Alberto brought over a foot of rain to most of these mountains in just four days.  Creeks and rivers overflowed, and mudslides occurred in many places. Otter Creek, just below my house, rose more than six feet in a matter of hours. I made this short video on Thursday to capture the rage that a normally tranquil stream can muster when angry.
