That's a song we sing at church... I think it really means something spiritual... but then, maybe all the rain we've been getting is a blessing. I only know that it's rained over 6" here (Glen Rose, Texas) in the past 4 days and every farm pond, every ditch... Lake Granbury and the local rivers... all are full to over-flowing.
Most of the time the creeks and rivers are all but dry... county roads often don't need a bridge over the water... just some culverts covered with fill and concrete. Now those roads are closed due to high water.
There's a gate closing the road here... and the river is raging over the road.
Another view... same place, just a few feet closer.
Here's looking on down the road... you can see the other side of the road in the distance.
Probably a good thing the county shuts the gate when this road floods as there's always some fool who is sure they can make it across in their truck.
Closer to home... look again at the header of this blog... nice waterfall, huh? And I thought the creek was flowing then!
I'm standing up on the bank looking down at the creek...
And when I took this, the water level had already gone down about 6', so when it was at it's highest, you'd have just seen a bump as the water passed over the rocks.
Another view... just a little further downstream. There's lots of debris which was left when the water was at it's highest.
And yet another view...
It's amazing the power that water has... huge rocks that would take a bulldozer to move will roll along like kid's marbles with the force.
The rain has slacked off to the occasional sprinkle... Bill & I had to head out for a walk to see what this part of Texas looks like with so much rain. We just hope the rain soaks into the ground and replenishes the much needed water levels.
That's All For Today!
