Every freakin' day.
Ok. Fine. I'm exaggerating. It only feels like years. Really it's just been weeks. Our water table is very happy. So is our well. If our well is happy, I'm happy.
Once in a while we get flash floods that fill up our low spots. The other night we had one and when we woke up, things had been rearranged a bit and there were big piles of sand where there hadn't been the day before.
K2's area suffered the biggest transformation. You might have to blow the pic up to see the notes.
This is just across the road. See the grass where it looks like someone drove over it? That's where the water was flowing from one side of the road to the other.
Here's a closer look. Notice where the girls found the other half of K2's footbridge.
Further up, we found a new dam.
We named it Turtle Dam because at the bottom of it we found a box turtle treading water. Poor thing must have been picked up and swept in by the flood. Probably had been there all night long. He was so relieved to be rescued.
We found new sand deposits everywhere. We don't mind much. The sand keeps the Virginia bluebells [mertensia virginiana] happy.
And the ducks don't mind the new arrangement at all.
