Day 323, The Floodplain

Hines Drive is a natural floodplain. At this time of year it is transformed into a 4.5 mile long holiday light display, except when Mother Nature decides to interfere. We had 1.5 inches of rain starting yesterday afternoon and going through the overnight hours. That was enough to send the Rouge River over its banks and create a flood over Hines Drive. There won't be any viewing of the Wayne County Lightfest this evening!
