Will it ever stop!!

Will it ever stop?  I don’t mean the rising water….I mean the stuff coming down from the sky…rain, rain, and more rain…

First I’ll go back to yesterday where we did another run along Morris Valley Road…just for comparison as to where it was a week ago.  Notice too that there is a Saskatoon Bush in flower in the foreground.  Saskatoon’s are popular native shrubs in the dryer interior.  We don’t see that many growing wild around here, but obviously this one finds the edge of the road to it’s liking – which is good.  Birds love Saskatoon’s!

Now back to today…I’m afraid we weren’t about to venture out for a long walk in this weather…just did a loop down to the boat launch, where the water is definitely creeping upwards..

there is the marker post, with the water only about 6 feet from it’s base now.

another look at the ‘lake’…this is from the furthest dry point you can get to..

and even that point won’t be dry for long…although it looks like it is all ‘land’  on that side…it isn’t….there is water right beside the path…

as for birds…could hear a few but primarily I think they were all sheltering from the rain.
