Valley Creek Up & Over


Valley Creek spilled up and over its banks this weekend after a three-day marathon of rainfall.

The yellow tape between the posts will hopefully keep people from trying to drive through the water that crept into Bloch Park, waterlogging part of the playground (not shown).

Jim, We did need the rain but not all at once! After a couple years of drought, though, we'll take it however how it arrives.

Just watch--somebody will go through and say they never saw it.

On Gresham Ore. blog about BBQs you said grilled out. I have to tell you that I heard that expression for the first time today and now I see it in print. I was told it is southern. Is that true? Out here we just say BBQ or barbeque. MB

Hi Small City Scenes,
Sure hope nobody tries to drive through the high water. They would sink their vehicle!

Interesting about the "grill out" question. It must be southern, but I just asked my husband what he says, and he "cooks out" steak and hamburgers" and "barbecues" pork or ribs or chicken only IF he's going to put barbecue sauce on it. I say I'm gonna "grill out" hamburgers or smoke a Boston Butt or barbecue some chicken. Guess we are kinda SPECIFIC! Thanks for visiting.

That worries me about what I'll be going home to. The Pearl was already high when we left.
