Brimming

We installed the dock in early June with about 6 inches of freeboard. I install it close to the spring water level, knowing the level will decline by summer’s end.  However what goes down sometimes goes up first.  June has seen a lot of rain.  Three days ago lake water lay about two inches below the dock surface.  It rained all weekend, at times heavily, and yesterday morning a thunderstorm raged close by and poured sheets of water on already-soaked earth.  I know exactly how hard it rained because I was out in the storm calling for a missing dog.  I turned home when lightning flash and one beat later thunder cracked almost directly overhead, deciding it was not a good day to die.  Just as I entered the house Chelsey tore up behind me, wildness in her eyes, and bolted in before me.  All safe.  I took this picture after the storm.  One more heavy rain will submerge the dock.  It’s happened before; everything returns to its level sooner or later.

  1. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few
    interesting things or advice. Maybe you could write next
    articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things
    about it!

  2. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
