I know, I don't usually post on Tuesdays.
It's a Happy Tuesday. We had a three and half inches of rain last night! With lots of lightening and thunder. YEAH! The trees and wild flowers will LOVE it. The river and creeks are UP.
Here are some before and after pictures of the creek near our house.
This past summer, 2011. Looking northwest.
After last night's rain. Water is actually flowing over the little dam.
This past summer, 2011. Looking southeast. The bald cypress on the left is high and dry.
After last night's rain.
It's amazing what a few inches will do.
We need more, but we'll surely take what we've been given.
It's makes me so happy I decided to share this video with you. The music is by Jamsie and the Happy Seven playing traditional music from the Virgin Islands. The pictures are of St. Thomas, probably during the 1940's and 50s, around the time when I was a kid growing up there. In the pictures the people appear to be poor, but we were all RICH with family, friends and culture. No one went without.
