On Saturday I saw people on social media making fun of the fact that there was no real rain and jokingly implying that we all might have been warned for just a little rain that isn’t even filling up a small bucket.
But then it hit and it HIT HARD.
Our little stream has now become a raging waterway and is running outside its banks. The ponds are also bigger than we have ever seen them and are overflowing in places that have not had water running in a very long time.
Even the irrigation ditch seems to have more water than it does during its actual running season.
There isn’t a real path and slowly going down I came across an old car wreck of what once must have been a horrible accident.
Then I drove down to the river to see it from the bridge at Chili Bar.
