Same here. I had to come home this afternoon by an alternate route because my usual road is now part of the French Broad River.
 
Lake Chatuge is the highest it's been in 40 years. They opened 14 flood gates on Chatuge dam today and the rivers haven't crested yet.

Edit, they just opened a 15th gate. That's the most ever opened at the same time in the history of the lake. Previous record was 8.
