Water in the River!   Leave a comment

Not a big deal in most places, but it is here.  There’s not much, but it’s here . . . to the west . . .

It’s still cold enough for ice . . .

But the water was even flowing in spots . . .

The dogs thought it was marvelous; Peaches especially.  She’d never seen river water before.  Her experience was limited to mud puddles.

The small amount of water probably means that the canal was being cleaned out, and the water that usually flows to the fields was turned back into the river.  It won’t last long, but it was certainly welcome.  We’re hoping it was a sign of Things to Come.
