The sounds of the river behind our house have been much louder since all the rain this afternoon, so we went down there to investigate. It does not look the same! The water is very muddy, flowing fast, and a bit higher than it was before. Apparently we got quite a lot of rain.
It was very late in the day when we went down, and so dark we were glad for our flashlights as we made our way back up to the street. The photos have a dusky bluish tint because of the low light, but you can see how muddy the water is. It’s quite different from the calm, clear water of less than two weeks ago.
