We had quite a bit of rain the last few days. I almost didn’t go outside for picture taking on Saturday. But there was a little break in the showers in the late afternoon, so I went out and got a few quick pictures. I love how rainy days turn green into Green.
Sunday afternoon, the skies finally cleared up. I decided to go check out the flooding….
The next picture is taken from the exact same spot as this earlier picture. I’ve cropped the image slightly wider, but otherwise the view is identical. I had to wade in ankle deep water to get to my spot this time around! The grape vines were almost completely submerged.
The picture above was taken right next to a gate. The picture below is the top of one of the gate posts. Shudder! It appears that all the neighborhood spiders made for “high ground” when the flood came, and ended up stranded on the fenceposts.It’s still making my skin crawl, just thinking about it!
