Yesterday we had temp flood. Seems a debris damn plugged the creek for a few hrs, causing water to spill over the bank at W's place. The water came straight down to the house, it was not there @ 530am, but at 7am it was coming down. L scrambled to put up a temp wall to redirect the water away while I tried to find sand/gravel to fill the remaining sandbags we had. The 3rd place was open and had 5/8's gravel. By the time we got the wall done, the water flow was nearly gone. The debris had broken up and gone down the creek to C's place and plugged his culverts and his driveway was flooded again.
I need to go talk with C to see how did the backhoe work last year, I want to put a French drain all the way from the large shed to the drainage ditch that goes along the road.
