I’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.

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?
The new bridge will be less prone to being blocked by debris. I think it’ll move water must faster than the old one.
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!
