The great flood of 2016 hit Winding Brook on August 15 and transformed Juday Creek from a peaceful, meandering body of water into a raging, fast moving river that overflowed its banks and caused havoc in yards and overflowed into streets.

Heavy benches were moved and overturned, flower pots were never to be seen again, and muck remained behind. Homes experienced costly water damage and are still feeling the after effects of this drenching and history-making rain. And pirate ships went from dry dock out to sea!
