Cameras stranded

Its been a very dry summer so far with only 1 inch of rain in May, and less than 1 inch in June, until now. Two days ago, 7.17 inches of rain fell in 6 hours, twenty miles north of me. We got about 1.75 inches from the storm. All of that rain north of me is starting to make its way down. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the river doesnt raise much higher. One of my cameras in the river will be ok, but the second one only about 1.5 feet from getting it's toes wet. The top photo is the higher camera last week vs tonight. I'm hoping the strong current isnt rocking the tree back and forth that the second camera is on. Otherwise I'm going to have a lot of videos of moving water.

Man, that's a major storm! I don't have any cams that might drown like you do but I'm having trouble getting to them. We've had so much rain here that entire fields are flooded, the trails we use to get to our cams have up to 3 feet of water on them and it's still raining. Glad I'm not farming anymore!
