It Rained!!

I should go away more often. This time it actually put some inches on the ground and in the pond, and now we are only about 15 inches behind average for the year.

We Got Rain!

The tank (pond) is the lowest I have seen in 25 years. The shore is nearly as wide as the water. The Great Blue Heron and our little Willet, and a number of other shore birds are having a wonderful time scooping up the trapped inmates. I was beginning to wonder what turtles do at a time like this, but we got at least 3 inches last night and expecting more, so there still is water up there.. And the grass is growing.090310tgt_dsc9399ss
