Hail Flood

Upper Dugout Creek gathered a large mass of both rain hail that fell from a memorable supercell and washed down assorted local drainages.  Since hail is ice, it floats, and was carried downstream by the overflowing creek, intermingling with assorted plant material and other detritus along the way.  The resulting mixed-composition drifts washed up along the edges of the flash flood, which temporarily cut off this road and several others in the area.
