Waiting For The Flood
What you see above is an area in one of the fields that never seemed to dry up after the flood a couple of years ago. It's a little bigger after all this rain we keep getting and getting and getting. When it finally does warm up a bit I expect all sorts of water birds. I can't get pictures of them though because this is right on the highway.
Just past those trees in the background is the river. It's not the biggest river right through here, but it's not exactly small either. As I found out before, when it floods it can wipe out the whole area. I'm glad I live on pretty high ground and I have a back way out, otherwise I'd be trapped.
I kept saying before how I'm going to go out to the nature parks a lot more again this year, unlike the past couple of years. My problem so far is that it's been raining non-stop for the past few weeks. Spring got here very late, but when it got here all we get is rain.
I'll have to think about all of this between now and my next post. Either I'm going to have some new pictures of nature trails for you, and maybe some cool stuff in with them, or I'll be showing you pictures of the flood. Floods are interesting. We'll see what happens. I'll talk to you later.
