Small moments after the flood. (Slaughter Creek)

These were taken 2 days after the Halloween flood of 2013. Slaughter Creek runs behind my house. Due to the drought, the creek has been dry with patches of stagnant water since I have lived here. The sheer amount of rain and flow in the creek was unexpected, to say the least.

Since the creek runs along the perimeter of a city park, people occasionally bring their dogs (and even fishing poles!) down to the dammed area.
