Rainy Day People

This doesn't look all that bad, but there wasn't much road left unflooded. It looked a lot more intimidating from the other side....just room enough for a car to pass....I walked back to get these shots.

We set off yesterday in hot pursuit of some ducks Liz saw at Bowmaker Pond. She sent photos, but they were so blurry we really couldn't be sure just what they were. Of course they were gone when we got there.....

Although there is a wild and gloomy beauty about the rain drenched countryside, the alerts popping up on all my devices and feeds are unsettling. I have a Google alert set to Gilboa Dam for obvious reasons. It has been showing up a lot lately, although not in reference to flooding. However, this morning flow measurements began to appear.

Our trip took us places we rarely visit and netted us the first Belted Kingfisher of the year, although not here in Montgomery County where we are doing most of our looking.

It also showed us how much water was out there then....and it rained all night...I hope it lets up for today!

Cathy, of course despite the fog and the rain the Amish were out in force. At least up there to the west they have lights on their buggies. Here we have real Old Order folks and they hav about three inches of reflective tape...pretty inadequate, alas.
