What a difference a day makes ….

Yesterday morning, I took the dog to the woods as usual and it was a relatively peaceful, uneventful experience. The stream was a sparkling trickle and the pond was a sheet of glass.

And then, yesterday evening, it rained.

And it thundered and lightninged, and the storm knocked out the satellite signals and frightened the animals.

It rained so hard and so fast that the gulleys couldn’t hold the sudden mass of water and some of the streets began to flood.

And my pond and my stream in the woods weren’t so peaceful anymore.

  1. Very dramatic change! And I wouldn’t be surprised if you told me that by tomorrow the pond and stream are back to glass and trickle. 😀

  2. A great story in pictures Alice you have really shown the power of water.. scary!..
    and how are you???

  3. Wow, floods are so powerful. Great shots. Hope things return to normal soon. Is your new landscaping/garden okay?

  4. we tend to forget how powerful water is until something like this. Life too, it seems, can go from quiet and trickling to roaring and overflowing.

  5. Wow, you poor thing. Boy, when nature wants to make herself noticed, she really does it big! Love your pictures – looking forward to following your blog.

  6. Nice picture of the flooded river. I love dramatic weather!
