On the morning of March 13th, 2010 I filmed these scenes of flooding at Fort Shenandoah, Va.

Thanks for the video.
I left home about a half hour before team mates called to tell me that the Early Bird was cancelled. I was planning to stop several places on the way. I arrived at the fort about 12:30 am. With all of the rain, I had taken my time and planned to arrive in time for the carbine match. When I turned off 522 onto 600, I saw how bad the flooding at the rod and gun club was and knew that Ft Shenandoah was going to be flooded. The water was up to the edge of 600 and I almost turned around but decided to go and see how bad the flooding was. From the parking lot the flooding appeared a little wore than the video shows. I turned around and left. My wife and I had lunch and visited the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

I had much the same experience. Got up there at 1100. The water was lapping at the edges of 600, and the range was submerged.

Would have been great if there had been SEALs during the Civil War. :-)
