El Nińo VS Eden's

I shot a couple of short videos of part of the farm Friday, May 29th. This was after missing the 5"-7" deluge that the rest of DFW endured that night. I watched that radar and was amazed that the storm skirted right along the edge of the farm. This usually only happens in August - when I NEED the rain here at the farm.

At any rate, another 1/2" fell - on top of the 15+ inches already on the ground. This is what I've been trudging through for the past month...

El Nino vs Eden's Part 2

I had reason to travel into Dallas yesterday and I couldn't resist stopping to see the Trinity where it runs downtown.

 The Mighty Trinity River May 29, 2015

I cross over those bridges whenever I go to Oak Cliff on deliveries, etc., and I was blown away by not only the amount of water - but the strength of the current.

I grew up not too far from the Des Plaines River in the Chicago area. I saw how a swollen river can bring a community to a screeching halt. There was also a small creek that ran through another area in my home town of Franklin Park and I knew many folks who spent many, many times pumping water out of their homes as well.

One of the things I looked at when I bought this farm was the distance from the buildings the pond and creek were. If that pond were to ever overflow all the way up to the barns.... well, let's just say I think I'm pretty safe. Sadly, the neighborhood directly south of me, often takes the brunt of overflow from the pond's spillway. I've no idea why a developer was allowed to build homes along the spillway from a pond.


If I could, I'd dig another pond to catch everything that runs over out of the original one, and in a spring like this one has been, it would be full to the rim, too.

I hope everyone is high and dry tonight. Water is a powerful force of Nature and not to be approached without respect. Turn around - don't drown.
