The small ridge of water in the middle is actually a drainage crick. It is at least 6 feet deep. There is a small shallow river at the tree line in the back. In between the two is a small field that someone farms every year. As you can see the river and drainage crick are flowing as one.
My kids were amazed at all the water. We are hoping for some dry weather soon. We have not had enough dry periods to dry out the soil enough to get into gardens and fields. I remember when this area flooded when I was a kid. I have not seen it flooded this much in a while. We are praying for some sunshine. We also had some tornadoes or high winds that did a lot of damage about 40 minutes north of us last night. There are so many places in the country right now dealing with flooding and tornadoes and wind damage. Please pray for all that have been effected in any way!!
