Today I drove through the small town where I grew up. I always like to drive through the big park. There is a large creek that flows through it.
The town recently redid the old bridge that takes you into the park.
But instead of seeing the big, open park, this is what I saw.
Flood waters had spilled out and covered everything. If you look at this next photo, you can see where the creek is supposed to be. It should wind around to the left of this image. You can see the bank on the far side.
In fact, there is a road that goes between the creek and that first line of trees to the right.
Here's a nice house with a wrought iron fence. You can see how far up the water came into their lawn.
Swinging my camera a bit more to the left, this is what it looks like. The creek is usually between those two lines of trees. There is a road to the left of the creek that runs below the blacktop road above.
Here's my pickup parked along the main road. A person should be able to see the grass and trees in the park. But all you can see is water.
Mother Nature is interesting. It is best to learn to live with her and know her ways. I guess that it the way with a lot of things in life.
Thanks for stopping by.
