Be careful out there. There are some closed roads in the county due to flooding. Do not drive around barricades. #ncwx pic.twitter.com/9DmRd2qVv6

Had some significant flooding last night. A tree fell across the creek and narrowly missed the hives. There’s some minor damage from the water in our yard and erosion along the banks of the creek. Our creek steps washed away along with a large rock that was beside of them. Thank the Lord, no water in the house though 🙌🏻 How are you guys holding up? Any flooding where you are? #beehives #creeklife #honeybees #hickorync #flooding
Did you experience any flooding over the weekend?
