October came in wet and heavy. We had tremendous downpours overnight and woke to a wet and wild world.
The Perkiomen Creek runs right through Perkasie - nearly splitting the borough in two. During heavy rains, the creek tends to swell and outgrow its banks. When it does, it renders several low-lying road impassable. This storm followed true to what we have come to expect:
This area, from the tree line forward, is normally a bit of grass and some roadway. All that creek water should be on the other side of the trees! Because of areas like this, the girls had a two hour delay for the start of their school day (roads need to clear enough for the busses to run).
