Day two. Topic = Mother Nature in the Works.

Where I live we have a small creek in our backyard that I can see out my bedroom window. On a normal day there is only about maybe a foot of water in it with what my family likes to call a "island" in the middle of the creek. I happened to look outside today and noticed that the island was completely covered up with water and the creek was actually going into our yard. Useually the water is so shallow that if you decided to put your feet in that you would have to step down into the creek just to get your toes wet. Today it literally was even with the grass. If you notice in the picture the grass on the right-hand side (that may add is no taller than a couple of inches) then you might be able to tell how high the water actually was.
