What a mess rain makes in February

We got about 50 mm of rain last night. It blew out creeks and driveways right around the lake.

The lake is really high right now and there is a lot of debris on the frozen parts of the lake. Even a big plastic fish tote. The gravel road on the other side of the lake is a real mess. Some places it is just all big rocks that blew out of the creeks.

Here are a few photos from our drive around the lake. I missed most of the really great shot because I was too busy looking at it with my eye and not the camera.

Here is a wash out with a pail of hydraulic fluid and a big log on the road. Photo taken through a dirty truck window.

Now it’s freezing and snowing.

Our driveway is rutted really bad. I think there was too much snow in the ditching going along the driveway so the rain got impatient and used the driveway instead.
