High Water Pictures
I've been wanting to post pictures of what it looks like around our house when it floods. I've been busy and hadn't had a chance to post them, so I will now.
Thursday night and Friday we had a lot of rain!
This is what it looked like out from our front porch on Friday morning. It reminds me of that song that says "How high's the water, Mama?"
As they say, this weather is for the ducks. . . and the geese. If you look closely, you can see them swimming in the background.
On the other side, it was just as bad. This is usually a field with a small stream on the right of it. It looks like we live beside of a lake! A muddy lake, that is.
By the time we went out on Friday, the water had already receded. Lots of times we are closed in on both sides. Rt. 21 going south and going north gets flooded over, and we're trapped in the middle.
The waters receded and the ducks and geese still enjoyed themselves. If you notice the fence in the background is a mess. They are down there now tearing it down so they can put up a new one.
Here is that same field in front of our house a few hours later, back to pretty much normal, except this time of year we are usually having a drought and the creek is just a trickle.
It's hot today, but I'm sure rain is more than likely on the way.
