The temperature rose suddenly from around 20 degrees to about 50 degrees, it started to rain and all the snow melted rapidly. I walked through the muddy mess and headed to work on Tuesday morning at 6:00am.
It seemed to be a pretty normal day, and I wasn't thinking much about the melting snow until I attempted to go home in the evening only to find the highway was completely shut down because of flash flooding caused by the rapid melting of the snow.
I drove back to the town where I work and ended up staying a week with a friend.
The next day I found out that the dam broke and the flooding was much worse than I had thought.
|The highway I usually drive to work on.|
|What is supposed to be the road connecting the highway to my dirt road.|
With all the road damage I was surprised and happy to see that my home was completely unharmed, and that the flooding didn't even reach my property:
|All that remained of the gigantic snow drift.|
