Drought, Floods, Drought Again

You may remember that last May it rained and rained. It rained almost every day in May. The good news was that rain officially ended the severe drought. The bad news was there was significant flooding in many places. Our local state park was one of those places. It closed in mid May and just partially opened again yesterday.  They told us the full park is not likely to be repaired until next spring.

And now we are in drought again.  The place was pretty ugly due to flood damage, drought, and fall “colors.”

Almost no birds to be seen.  So, so dry the birds don’t even want to hang around.  But we did find dozens of these spider webs on the ground that are made by web-funnel grass spiders.  Kinda cool.
