Hubble Creek on the Rise

Children play in Hubble Creek in Jackson's City ParkI’ve written before about how Dennis Scivally Park and Hubble Creek in Jackson’s City Park were my go-to places for wild art. I still can’t resist going back there anytime there has been a heavy rain so I can see the water cascade over the low water crossing.

These youngsters are “down at the creek” in the 1960s.

Video of mini-flood


News of torrential rain in Southeast Missouri and a news brief that the city of Jackson is collecting old Christmas trees to combat bank erosion along the creek jogged my memory that I had shot some video in the park on Halloween 2013 after a heavy rain. I’m sure the water was a lot higher during the recent downpours, but this is the best I can do.

Like the video I did on the Bollinger County artesian well, listening to the water is worth 1:17 of your life.

Don’t forget the Amazon Prime promo

Amazon is offering a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial December 26, 2013, through January 10, 2014. It’ll give you free two-day shipping, free online access to 41,000 movies and TV shows and some other cool stuff. Here’s the post I made with more details about Amazon Prime.

I like the service well enough that I pay $79 a year for it. You can cancel after 1 day, a week or 29 days. I have to confess a selfish interest: I get a bounty for everybody who signs up for the trial, even if they bail without subscribing after the 30 days. It’s a win for both of us.

  1. Ahhh…rushing water. It is very relaxing and well worth the 1:17 to see and listen. They do have NEW bridge at Dennis Scivally park, I wonder how that will effect the flow in the park when they get a good hard rain?

  2. We had the Reynolds family reunions at Dennis Scivally for many years, so I too have fond memories of that patk. Yea, my older brother and some of the Reynolds cousins did fine a snake one time! Love that little bridge!
