As the city leaders play ping pong with balls of flood information, clean-up times and the blame game, water in the rural area continues to rise.
The marker in front of the dead tree is showing the yard is about 5-and-a-half-feet underwater. One issue the flood brings us is this area is prime for a full sun garden. Sweet corn and pumpkins grow awesome here, but the risk of flooding all summer and a late planting creates a bit of a gamble. So the full sun wiffle ball field it is.
At night it is quite gorgeous with the light reflecting off the water.
I swear the frogs are out too. Last night it sounded like a swamp with all the different nocturnal animals.
