This stream in our backyard was flowing nicely on Tuesday, November 22, 2011. The rain continued throughout the night.

On Tuesday night and on Wednesday, the National Weather Service issued a flood warning for our county. The ball field on Van Horn always is the first to fill with waters from the Little Kanawha River.

Our friends in Brooklyn were trapped for a short period. We were fortunate that the rains stopped Wednesday morning. Flood stage for the Little Kanawha River at Glenville is 23 feet. At 27 feet the waters start collecting under the stoplight. At 30 feet the water enters the Go-Mart. In 1985, the flood stage was 36 feet and was devastating to the businesses and homes.

Glenville dodged another bullet this time.
