!!!!!!! High Waters !!!!!!!

Over the past couple days,
there has been flooding in the area.
Our lazy little river that flows at a meager 50ish cfs
in the summer was raging up over 4000.
Usually those large rocks are
several feet above the water.
 The cool part is that the waterfalls are running.
This is 'our' waterfall.
It actually belongs to the person who owns
the property across the road, 
but it faces us.
We are pretty fortunately situated
in that our house sits at a nice level
above flood stage.
Farther down river, there were folks who
were not so happily situated.
I don't know that there was any real damage
as far as homes go,
but fields, yards, and corals were all under water.
Livestock was moved to higher ground.
Today it dropped back down below flood stage for us,
but there are several tributaries that flow into it
as it flows on down so that things are still
pretty soggy down river.
I am very thankful it was no worse than it was.

Until next time,

  1. there has been so much devastation caused by flodos this year here in the UK, I do hope there is no damage to the properties further down river from you

  2. Glad to hear that everyone is okay.

  3. To see a waterfall from your property... Awesome!
