Flood Cleanup

Went to Clendenin WV to participate in some cleanup work following the recent flood. It’s not just water in houses, the river left mud and debris inside and out. Lots of outside help happening in this town, and the folks here appreciate it. Lots more to do.

This 1948 newspaper was behind the drywall of one house; the lead article talks about flooding on the same Elk River that wrecked this community a couple of weeks ago.

Subfreezing temperatures have me exploring the ice in the creek in my back yard.

It’s cold

For some reason, I really like to photograph ice formations. You can get abstractions, or interesting flows and curves. I’m lucky to have a creek in my back yard, so when the temperatures drop, it’s a good place photograph. Unfortunately, thanks to the periodic heavy rains and creek flooding, I also have to work around the crap (like cinderblocks and bricks and wood debris) that washes down into my portion of the creek.

Or should I say “crick?”
