Perspective


To give you some perspective on what the river normally looks like, I thought I'd add this picture taken back in April. Notice how dull the landscape was compared to now.

The grass begins to grow in April. If it was a good year our cows were let out to pasture around the third week in April. We miss seeing them out in the meadows since we sold our dairy herd back in 2000.
The poor farmers are having a terrible time trying to get their haying done this year.Posted by Picasa

BTW kerri, the planter was an old wringer style washing machine.

Wow! that is quite a difference in the water table! Hope you get some dry weather soon!

People just don't realize the extreme damage, not to mention hardships, that flooding can do. Farmers are especially hard hit when the weather doesn't cooperate!

The farmers work so hard and depend on the weather so much. My prayers are with them.

Take care,
Connie

Kerri, the flooding looks a bit scary, glad you got your driveway fixed so quickly, see the kittens didn't like getting their feet wet.

I keep shooting down the page to compare the two photos- what a change! Poor Australia is desperate for rain, water shortages even in London and look at you guys! lol
Hope you have your wellies handy Kerri.

That is a tremendous difference Kerri,
Hard to figure out where all that water will go, as the earth can only absorb just so much, can't it!

The weather does seem backwards this year. No flooding from the spring melt and here we are in July when we usually start worrying about wells running dry! I hope they get your road fixed quickly and I'm sorry you had more trouble with your driveway. It looks like you are going to get more rain today! My daughter lives on the Oneida River which is high but not flooding yet.
