Flash Flood on a Mountain!

I live on top of a mountain.  In fact, our town's name translates literally as "Land High".  We rarely see flooding, but today was unusual.  Someone suggested it was because the ground was saturated from snow (although we hadn't had much of that this winter, either.)

I went to the kitchen this afternoon to pour myself another glass of iced tea and looked outside and this is what I saw!  There were some better photos posted by others on Facebook, but since I didn't take those, I didn't want to use them on my blog! It was unreal how much water was in town about a mile from here!

I think our basement is flooded.  I'd rather not look right now!
