Anyone else's road failing because of the flooding? Freeman Road, at the mailboxes where it turns into North Freeman, is about to fail. Several of us placed bets on it about a month ago... I said it wouldn't make it through August, but it's looking like it'll go inside of a week or two at this point. The slough has been running all the way across the road there for at least a month, and now it's running across the road in a half dozen places including all the way over the top of Mark Twain. The river is now also up into the roads, and my 4Runner was in the water (all 4 tires) when I got up this morning. Of course, I didn't leave it that way last night. It was on "high ground," which now requires a new definition.

Well, technically I guess it's not my road anymore, but I'm out there enough and it is certainly my home away from home.

...That is a WHOLE lotta water. I kept myself from cursing the rain gods this morning by reminding myself that we are not on fire, so thanks for that reminder, Frostnip!

It will be interesting to see what happens when that piece of the road does fail. It is literally AT the spot where the sign is that says "road not maintained by the state past this point."

And now we're in for a few cold nights. It is supposed to get below 50 here at night which is pretty cold here. Have had several days in the low 60s when it rained.

You're in McGrath, right?

It has not exactly been what most people would call "warm" here since our big heat wave ended, either, although I like the recent temperatures. I think it was in the mid-50s this morning. Are you all getting any of this rain?

Got 3" of rain in June, 4 1/4" in July. Lots of heat in June also helped the river rise, Only half of normal snowfall too. It's supposed to be the rainy month now too. Berries great and early. Not enough time to pick. Also around 50 ish this morn. Did get some temps in the 80's but also more humid than normal.
