Crossing Arlington's Flash Flooding Village Creek Is Not A Good Idea
Instead I found a closed gate with a "Closed Due To Flooding" sign.
So, just like I did a week or two ago, I drove to the Interlochen side of the Village Creek Natural Historical Area.
In the picture above you are looking at the view from whence I was parked in Interlochen. I could see water flooding over the dam bridge, which meant there would be no shady walking with the Village Creek Indian Ghosts, unless I decided to try and cross the flooding bridge.
Watch the video below to see if I made it across the raging torrent.
After enjoying the salubrious benefits coming from all the negative ions shooting into the air from the broiling Village Creek water, I walked for a mile or two on the Bob Findlay Linear Park Trail and then decided I was not liking the ultra high humidity, so, it was off to Walmart to get some groceries in extremely cool air-conditioned comfort.
There was very little water flash flooding in Walmart, though the Lawn Whisperer made have had a few things to whisper about in the area surrounding Walmart.
