ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

I knew there was going to be a problem with the storm coming. The creeks were already high and the ground saturated. DRO said the road is blocked off beyond the shop at the entrance to the NF. I still remember years ago (2010?) when it flooded so bad it washed all the fish out of the hatchery into the parking lot at the NC wildlife center. Just a few years before that it washed the old wooden bridge out at the hatchery and a big rock and mud slide closed the road beyond the hatchery for years.

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

The Davidson drains faster than most, looks like Haywood County is underwater. People are missing. Hope the Hillbilly is OK https://www.wral.com/houses-bridges-washed-away-fred-hits-western-nc-with-force/19830479/

Biltmore Village just south of Asheville near (now in) the Swannanoa river.

You cannot see attachments on this board.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

Little Swannanoa river looked like the Colorado

Extreme Meteorologist Reed Timmer was on the scene as torrential rain from the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred led to severe flooding in Pisgah National Forest on Aug. 17.

Yep, I'm ok. I got caught in the mudslide traffic nightmare on I-40,, took me three and a half hours to get home yesterday afternoon. Then, the Pigeon was flooded across the road below my house. I live a stone's throw from the Pigeon, but I'm up on the hill. My truck looks like I've been mudbogging just from driving to work this morning on paved roads.

I saw car crash footage, rock slide, trailors floating down the river. It looked like the read deal.

Yeah, it's a damn mess. Not nearly as bad as Ivan back in 2004, but bad enough.  Still lots of roads closed, including 74 through the Nantahala Gorge.

Lots of people are missing :'(  Curso is on the edge of Shining Rock Wilderness on the Big East Prong of the Pigeon, and Lake Logan is where the West Prong of the Pigenon empties into. Both are steep gradient drainages.https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/north-carolina-flash-floods-brought-by-tropical-depression-fred-leave-30-missing/ar-AANt3BU?ocid=uxbndlbing

Latest count this morning is 35 people still missing here in Haywood. Not looking good after more than 36 hours.
