Others just get wet.
Well folks, we've been doing a little of both.
We had a little slow, steady rain, yesterday.
Then, last night, we had a lot of rain and some wind...and, a lot of noise.
The creek is flowing, for the first time in over a year.
You can hear the roar of the waterfall from the house.
It's hard to get a picture that does it justice. Lots of wet, slippery rocks. That big rock you see in the center, is probably six feet across. It's at the bottom of the falls...about 25 feet down.
I could maybe get a better shot from across the creek.
But, I'd have to wade through this to get there.
That's just not going to happen.
This pond is where the creek turns. That wall on the left used to go all the way across.
They had to open it up a few years back. It was holding the creek back too much,
and water was getting way up in people's yards. We weren't here then.
I think I might have panicked.
From this point, if I look right, I can see up the creek.
To the left, you see it flowing down to the falls.
It's moving along pretty fast.
It moved fast down the Rio, too. And, this gunk stopped it up.
Grass clippings from the golf course, dirt....what a mess.
That makes this part of the Rio back up into the driveway.
And, that sometimes lets water get into the garage.
I got to sweep water out, this morning....how fun.
But, I won't complain too much. The wind got high, but no damage.
We've had worse water in the garage. Not sure what we're going to do to stop that.
To the east a short way, there was real flooding.
So, we were lucky here.
And, having almost three inches of rain, after none for so long, is
I'm glad I got the weeds out of the veggie garden in time.
Hope you got some lucky rain.
