After we got 50 mm of rain in 24 hours, there was no shortage of photos of high water.
Huntsville declared an emergency, with many roads completely washed away and people needed to be evacuated.

Hwy 11 collapsed near Allensville when the water undermined the highway and created a sinkhole.

the bay is open thanks to the rivers running in.
Marsh's Falls is impressive right now. Just a reminder -- stay well clear of creeks and rivers and even ditches. The water is running very fast, and since it is meltwater, it is running very cold as well.

The standing rock near the base of Marsh's Falls, where summer visitors like to sit and sunbathe, is currently somewhere under a high standing wave.
The river is running very close to the top of the old bridge abutment. Last August I was able to walk almost all the way across the Falls at that abutment without getting wet feet. Now, not so much... Just stay clear!

the big Pine doesn't wash away!
Waterfalls are impressive and beautiful when they are in Spring Flood. But dangerous.
Looking downstream from the Falls you can see the extent of the widening of the river to take up all that water.
