It’s so wet that the county pulled its rock trucks off the roads. They were getting stuck, she said.
Flood warnings were up for Salt Creek, which flowed over Saltillo Road on Wednesday afternoon, shutting down a major arterial in south Lincoln.
Jim Davidsaver, the county's emergency management director, says he does not expect to see floodwaters reaching Lincoln homes as happened in 2015.

"We are monitoring very closely and don’t anticipate any evacuation of residential areas in Lincoln," he said.
Water also covered a section of 84th Street between Cornhusker Highway and Adams Street.
Inside the city, the Parks and Recreation Department closed Wilderness Park and several of the city's dog runs to allow them to dry.
The Lincoln Airport reported 0.46 inches of rain through 8 p.m. Wednesday, when the high temperature climbed to 63 degrees.
Rain and high winds are expected Thursday, with the possibility of some snow in the evening. Thursday's high will hold near 40.
