Plenty of rain, but no extreme flooding
We got about 2-1/2 inches of rain and some strong winds in the latest round of wild March weather. I hate to think how flooded we would be if we had received 13+ inches of rain, like Cape Girardeau, MO. If there was serious flooding in Hopkinsville or Christian County, I didn't hear about it, and I didn't see any reports about it in the newspaper today.
I took the photographs below yesterday morning. The first one shows a little brook running wildly out of the woods and joining with the ditch beside our lane. At the bottom of the hill, the water spills into the highway ditch and then flows into a creek that eventually ends up in the Little River.
The photograph below was taken at the junction of Overby Lane and Highway 508 (Butler Road) in eastern Christian County. Ordinarily, this little brook might have a few inches of water, here and there. However, in heavy rain, the little brook is a channel for excess water, directing it to a larger stream that runs nearby. Like the tiny brook above, these waters pour into Little River and eventually into Lake Barkley (the Cumberland River.)
