Water receded for a few days but after last nights rain I thought it would spill its banks again-all good so far. The field/pasture at the south end of Bulman is still flooded out....but it's really not a field anyway, it's a wetland/swamp naturally.

While out & about I noticed some pretty dark clouds in the area of headwaters of Mill creek, only a problem if it dumps it all in 1 spot i.e headwaters of Mill ck.

Sorta kinda...It didn't rain as much as predicted and the river didn't breach its banks as of about 0900.

It wasn't dangerous. It wasn't exciting...
That concludes the 2020 play by play Mill Creek flood forum. It ran over the road for a day...but that's it. Properties had minimal flooding in the area.
Tune in next spring for a hopefully boring 2021 flood forum.
Will the Earth run out of water before then, and never flood again?
Stay tuned...
Stay informed....
