Notes

14 MM rainfall in past 24 hours, presently sunny and calm. Water here is so high that the county has closed off this boat launch. I was able to carefully get to the dock without getting feet too wet. Some water bugs, few frogs, red winged blackbirds , songbirds and flock of canada geese flying overhead. Lots of slimy green algae on the surface of the creek and where water has ponded from the overflow. Plenty of weeds under the surface.
