Sometime in the 30s, the corps of engineers did a flood control project on the creek that ran through my town. This basically resulted in the creek bed being channeled down a straight, deep cement trough for it's entire length through town. Normally, the walls of this trough and about half of the bottom were dry. If you were on the ground near it. you could look down in and about 30 feet below, you'd see a trickle of water running down the middle. During Agnes, that whole thing was filled to within three feet of the top and raging. That area never did flood, but I've never seen that trough even half as full of water as it was during Agnes.
