I think it rained harder this afternoon than I’d ever seen it rain.
The neighbor’s yard was even more of a lake than it was in the last downpour.
There was even a waterfall coming over the wall.
The side of our yard was also becoming a lake.
We could hear the river roaring, so as the rain let up we decided to go take a look.
There were waterfalls coming down the steps.
When we got down on the flat part, the path was under a bit of water.
Then, we reached the river!
I never saw the water so muddy!
The water was moving along faster than I’d ever seen it too.
The lizards usually hung out on these logs, but today only the tops were showing above the water.
The water had come up quite a bit higher on the shore.
There were waterfalls where I’d never seen them before.
The water looked so active.
Joel surveys the scene.
The water rushes around the point where a log is stuck in the rocks.
What a sight!
When we got back home the rain was only a slight sprinkle, and the remains of the lake in the neighbor’s yard were pretty.
We went down to the river after a rain before, but it didn’t look like we found it today!
