woosh!


Nice cloudy morning...then some sun...a trip south to stock up then the rain pounded the Field Lab.  Got about 3/4" total over the last 5 days then almost the same amount in 40 minutes late this afternoon.  No place to put the water so I just watched it flow away.  The frogs are chirping tonight.  Good bye road.  74,94,69, .64", B

Will you really not have a road?

That is a beautiful shot of the rushing water. What a shame you dont have any more tanks to store all this extra water. At the same time what an enviable position that the ones you have are full.

Sorry to hear about your road :-(

That is a lot of water to see go by. To bad you don't have a pond or reservoir to store it in. Is that your road where the water is running? Hang in their. hope not but you may have more rain coming. Sorry!

A mini flash flood!

Always more water than you or I can capture...

I wonder, rather than letting erosion ruin the area around the dam, how about installing a hydro electric generator for the excess? Then downstream you can dig another reservoir and fill your tanks from it
