January Rains

 

Strange weather! That's getting to be a recurring theme, isn't it?

 

Earlier this week we had a few nice days with temperatures in the mid fifties. We also had an unexpected January gully washer. The rains only lasted about a half hour but the downpour brought us 2 inches of rain onto already soggy ground (that same ground that hasn't dried out properly all year.)

 

 

If we hadn't done the creek restoration work this past spring we would have had a repeat of the flash flood. But with our new creek we had no damage – just photo and video opportunities.
