Southern Man

Saturday, June 01, 2013


Last night's record deluge left Southern Land more or less submerged.

Wolf Creek Lake was at record levels, high enough to put several feet of water in the future Fishing Pond.

The future Garden Pond was also full of water.

The Point was completely submerged. This picture was taken in the morning; by evening the water had risen to well beyond those woodpiles.

A familiar sight as Southern Man tried to make his way into Southern City and to the Ancestral Manor. He had to go a good seven miles east before finding a road that was open all the way to the city.

Southern Man was stopped less than a mile from the Manor by high water where he ran into Southern Brother and his lovely wife. They didn't try to cross the water either.

The area lakes are pretty much full so we can safely say that the drought is over. It will be interesting to see how long it takes the lake to drop back to its usual level. Right now it's a good four feet above the top of the dock pilings.

The road that runs north of The Land is impassible after rain.

Rivers and Lakes(and ponds)that flood bring to the banks nasty things called SNAKES! Not the good kind but the gross types like copperheads. I would rather have mosquitoes than snakes.

Turtles and (non-venomous) snakes are always welcome at The Land.
