    That system is really pumping precip into the top of the Squaw Creek and South Skunk River watersheds right now. Ames might be in for a long day tomorrow...

    I just don't know how much more the ground can hold before it says enough is enough. I've been watching radar this evening and those storms up in Calhoun and Webster counties had to put down a ton of rain given how slowly thew were moving.

    the skunk river is about 30 feet wider then normal right now running through corn fields. if it ever starts to rain i see the flooding possibly being about twice as bad as on sunday because almost nothing has had a chance to dry out. everywhere i walked in the grass today was soggy and muddy so i dont see it getting any better

    Re: Weather 8-10-2010

    i am sitting on the deck in the North Dakota/Cameron School Road area and the clouds were pretty wild and the lightning is pretty wicked too. Squaw Creek runs through our backyard and my finace' said this is the highest she's seen it since she bought the house 5 years ago. To give some perspective, last summer we could walk across it and it was only mid calf high, right now it is over the ledge in our backyard which is 8' high. But it still needs to rise about 20' before it would be even close to the house (we are up on a hill).

    won't take much to keep things high and push them higher.

    15 to 20' at its current level, we are pretty high above it on our hill. Pretty much Ames would be destroyed before it would reach us.
