I set my deer stand and trail camera out along the opossum creek near the Kaskaskia on Christmas eve thinking the rain would be no big deal.  It rained for FOUR days.  My poor little Moultrie camera started taking pictures on the night of the 28th and continued taking 34 more until 5:00 am the morning of the 29th when it, like the Titanic, sank below the waves.  The SD card survived and I rescued it today Feb. 20th almost two months later.

I put the camera at about 5 feet but the water was about 7 or 8.  The parking lot was under 3 to 4 feet.
