Last week before I left for training, we had a day where a TON of rain came down. I think we had about 2-3" of rain in that single day. When we got home from work, we decided to take a trek down to the creek/river/stream in the back of our property. Usually this time of year, its pretty much a small creek or stream. Most areas you could walk across with only ankle-deep water.
After the rain storm that came through, it was raging again. Our neighbor has semi-developed his area to make it a bit more usable. In doing so, he created a small area where he built a dam and a waterfall. The weekend before, there was only about 1/4" of water running over the log...now....
There was at least a foot of water raging over the same log that only had a 1/4" of water over it. It was really pretty being down there and listening to the river, which it really was a river after all the rain.
Here's some more photos of the waterfall and "rapids" from a down-stream angle.
I haven't been back down there since getting back from training, but I'm sure its back to normal now.
I will have some quilty/crafty posts again soon once I get caught up on things again. I have a bunch of photos on the camera and need to get them downloaded on the PC and then uploaded to Flickr.
Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather!
