Dropped 2 inches. Now they are sandbagging down the road.Bad idea if the water rises another half meter...it will just flood every property if they continue as the water has to go down the floodplain.

Water up at least another 2 inches and just like I said...sandbags on the road are not doing a thing, and they won't cuz the water has to go down the floodplain.(The sandbags were breached hours ago) That means crossing, and running down the road...just like every other year.

Water up enough to be running down road and starting to flood properties. Bulman Rd closed.

Mill Creek level is decreasing steadily, however, Scotty Creek level is up lots and where it meets Bulman Rd....the road is impassable. Properties on the east side of the road are in for way more carnage right away, so heads up down there.

Water way up after last nights rain. Anyone trying to get through on Bulman...forget it, the asphalt has been peeled off by the force of the water. There are deep gravel bars and deep holes that are not visible. Unless you have a boat or a M-1 Abrams tank, you will lose your vehicle .Properties towards Hereron Rd. are flooding.

Bellevue has never been this loud since we moved here - sounds like giant rocks banging, just the water raging, even splashing up on the foot bridge

Yup. Bellevue is a Malted Milk Melee. Grinding rocks making new future beach sand

The water surged late yesterday in a 30 minute period up over 1 foot. Bulman Rd. should have been renamed Bulman river. The road had boulders and chucks of asphalt tumbling down it. The road -obliterated.
Water level has been decreasing all day. If it doesn't rain... the worst has come and gone.

When I was out for a walk around 11am, I noticed some very dark clouds near the area of the head waters of Mill Creek. My first thought was not again... what started the flooding of Mill Creek last year.

Mill Creek on Richter where the bridge is appears alright. The water is no where near what is was last year. (yet) Has to come up a few feet before close-by homes get wet.

Well kids...show's over. It wasn't as bad as the 2017 flood. No more flood on Mill Creek. That concludes the 2018 play by play Mill Creek flood forum.
Tune in next year, where I, 'oldtrucker', will bravely be putting my life on the line to bring you the super dangerous and exciting 2019 play by play Mill Creek flood forum. Will it flood again? Will Bulman Rd. get obliterated again? Will 'oldtrucker' get wiped out and finally silenced?
Stay informed....
Stay tuned...
