The last thing I did before blasting off to the Tulsa wedding on Friday, June 19, was to go to Dutchtown to get ready for what I thought was going to be a major flood that would cause some lumber we had to float off.
By the time I got back in town, the water had gone down to where it appeared to more of an inconvenience than a disaster. (Click on the photos to make them larger.)
Clearing the way
While I was shooting the first photo, I heard a noise behind me and gave way to a railroad crew coming through to clear the line. One of the workers said the main line was open all the way to Wittenberg, but nothing could move south until Cape opened the floodgate north of Sloan’s Creek.
