Flood 2011

Six days of rain equals lots of excess water which leads to dam's in the area overflowing with water!,

We seriously, didn't see the sun shine for six days straight...just never ending rain!

The sky did managed to clear up for a few short hours which resulted in a quick last minute trip Tanyard Creek. I figured with all of the rain that the waterfall would be AWESOME! We managed to hike up to the very top of the Dam and worked our way back down to the waterfall.

The simple flow and force of water is amazing. Just check out the photos. I have never seen such a powerful force of water coming down the waterfall before at Tanyard Creek. We have been coming to Tanyard Creek since Landon was only 4 weeks old.

We spent the rest of the time exploring different areas of the creeks. It wasn't too long before the sky went from sunny to a real scary black clouds. It seriously, happened with a blink to the eye! I told the kids we better cut this hike short and head back to the van. We barely made it back before the rain started to come down again in buckets full of rain!

On Top of Lake Windsor Dam...Flood gates are OPEN!

Checking out the views of Tanyard Creek Waterfall!

Spring time is my favorite time at Tanyard Creek!

Too much of a good thing can quickly become bad thing. We love rain but enough already!

Plus, it's expected to rain for a few more days...hopefully, we wouldn't have to build an Ark!

That is crazy! I can't believe the pictures of Arkansas. I read on article in the newspaper which showed this elderly woman being rescued in a boat.
