Well Crap!

I was worried this might happen.  Looks like Knob Creek Gun Range is at least partially submerged in the Great Ohio Valley Deluge of 2011:

The lowest point in that photo is the bridge that you take to cross Knob Creek to get to the parking area and range.  I'm pointing this out because the water is up over the bridge.  H/T to WHAS for the heads up and photo. 

KCR sits about two miles inland from the Ohio, but the creek empties directly into the big river.  When the Ohio backs up, all of its tributaries flood.  This isn't the first time KCR has had to close due to the creek coming out of its bed, but this is the worst I've ever seen.

If this doesn't clear up by May 7, Derby Day, the first Annual Derby Day Shootenanny may have to be cancelled or postponed.  I'm not hopeful.  The weather critter is predicting another 4 to 6 inches of rain this week, and more next week.
