Never Mess With Mother Nature-The Occoquan River After Tropical Storm Lee

We finally saw sunshine this afternnon but not after Tropical Storm Lee dumped somewhere between 6-9 inches of rain on the area.  In Woodbridge one local neighborhood was wiped out by a flooded creek.  Here is hoping the worst is over for now.

Though there are harder hit areas along the east coast of the US from both Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, Northern Virginia hasn't escaped the rath of the storm.   This morning I decided to head out to take a look at Occcoquan River to see how she was faring with all of the rain.

The historic Town of Occoquan was flooded last night but fortunately this morning the water had receed from the streets.  However the Occoquan River is still raging and with it still raining everyone is on high alert. 




Watching the Occoquan River raging was a reminder that when water rises it knows no boundaries and if you are in the way it won't stop for you. Hope all my Active Rain friends up and down the east coast are safe as we wait for the last of this lingering storm to leave the area.

Amazing photo.  I know that river well after livng in Fredericksburg for 25 years.  In Northeast pa we are having a real bad time with the Susquehanna flooding.  Water is truly one of natures most powerful forces.

Great video! My thoughts and prayers go out to all those suffering from the flooding back east. Here, we're dealing with far too dry of weather and the many resulting wild fires. Mother seems far too unhappy lately all over.

Bonnie I saw photos from areas in PA that had severe damage.  This has been a long few weeks with earthquakes, hurricanes and tropical storms.

Gretchen-the weather seems to be hitting extremes.  To much rain on one coast and wildfires on another.
