Mom's "Dry" Creek bed Revisited

This river is normally a dry gully. After 12 straight hours of rain and 4" of new rain in the gauge, it has become a raging stream.

After listening to thunder and seeing lightning all night, and hearing rain on the roof for hours, it seemed like a good time to check out Mom's dry creek bed.
It is hard to see, but the water is flowing nicely over the two waterfalls.

The water in the drainage ditches that feed this culvert is at the top and we have a 10' wide stream through the 6' culvert on Lot 7. We wondered when we first saw that culvert and everything was dry why in the world they had such a huge culvert.
