If the Creek Don't Rise...

We live beside a wet weather creek.
It goes on two sides of our house.
It comes along the back, and turns at the pond
you can see in the photo below.

This little feature was built by the young man next door,
so his elderly Golden Lab could get wet, without swimming.

This was back in June. The water was flowing over the cart path,
making a little waterfall, on it's way to the Big Waterfall.

Sunday...three days ago...this creek was dry.
The pond...which is four feet deep in places...was dry.

Not today.
I'm not sure how much rain we've had.
Our digital rain gauge chose Monday,
as a good day to die.

It's coming across the cart path with a lot of power.

It's rushing down to the Big Waterfall.
I didn't walk down was still raining,
and I didn't want to dodge the runoff.

The pond is full, again.

And, I'm wondering if Nate's wall is still there, 
so Carly can swim.

Water is an amazing thing.

We are thinking about those in Louisiana,
who are dealing with WAY too much water.
Flooding is such a sad thing to deal with.

I hope you're safe, wherever you are.

Happy Gardening...
