The Rains Came Down and the Floods Came Up

The rains have been coming down here in Oconee County. I guess it started around 2pm on Saturday and rained all day on Sunday, and more on Monday. You can read the full story here.
This is Sertoma Field in Walhalla where our children do recreation sports. We heard the concession stands were flooded, and you can see the soccer goals were almost covered. I doubt the soccer and football teams will be able to resume play for a while until it's dried out.
Even the parking lots were under water so they closed the entrance to the field. Many passerbys were stopping to take photos (like ourselves).
Most creeks were well out of their banks and raging like a river. This creek is near our house that we cross many times during the day.
