The 80000+ people in the infield are just one of the many reasons I avoid Louisville on the first Saturday in May.
This is how it looks when it rains on Derby Day. No thanks.
Closer to home, the creek behind my house has flooded over it's banks (again). I just hope it stays well away from my house.
This is where the creek is creeping up into my backyard.
Across the main road that runs perpendicular to my street.
This is on my side of the road. Usually the water is about 6-8 feet lower.
See the trees- they normally edge the bank of the creek and everything in the foreground is 'lawn'.
Closer view of last pic.
On the way to an appointment this morning, several roads were closed due to water and the local park is completely under water. The picture below is from the summer, because I didn't have my camera with me this morning. The tree line in the back edges the creek. Now, the water is all the way to the split rail fence in the foreground (which you can't tell from this photo, but they are actually on a rise several feet above the walkway.) and it is about 2/3 up to the roof of the picnic pavilion.
I almost miss the snow.
