Our Cup Runneth Over or Heeeellllloooo Alberto!

Local creeks are rising fast.
Tropical depression Alberto is on it's way. Creeks and roads are flooding, low spots in the yard are filling with inches of water, and the rain is loud enough to be distracting.
Our rain barrel filled quickly,
diversionary tactics were employed,
the levees are holding.
Some collateral damage is evident,
but we mitigate using a tarp and landscape bricks.
We need the rain, but this is a bit much. Alberto is currently 75 miles SW of Raleigh. We'll see how our solution holds up against the 35 mph winds.
