Waterfall in Raleigh!

With the significant rain we've had over the past couple days, creeks are swollen and many roads are closed due to flooding.  Another consequence of all this rain is waterfalls that normally don't exist are raging.  Before work this morning, Amanda and I went to find one along Raleigh's Capital Area Greenway.  We parked at the NC Museum of Art and followed Reedy Creek Trail towards downtown.  It was really raining when we started but we were prepared with waterproof clothing.  Across the pedestrian bridge over I-440, we turned left on House Creek Greenway and went about a mile to near Lake Boone Trail.  A small, unmarked tributary flows into House Creek here.  Normally, there's nothing to see here, but today, there was a roaring waterfall.

After a few pictures, we headed back as the rain died down.  The waterfall will probably be gone by tomorrow, but exciting to find one so close to home.
