Wordless Wednesday… Before and After

 

One of our walking places has a large retention area built to handle any flooding that might (will) occur.  It gets a lot of use from soccer players, dogs, RC planes and their owners, and anyone else wanted to use the large open area.

But after the heavy rains from last week, that area also became a wetland for some of our area birds.  We’ve missed seeing that from our walks at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach.

Good morning, Kathy - you are quite the pro at this staging thing, huh?  Transforming Houston, Texas into Delray Beach, Florida.  No sleight of hand magic either.  Just a little help from Mother Nature.

Hello Kathy,  rain happens and looks like the birds will like it this time of year but soon the heat will dry it and and the dogs will love it again.

Good afternoon Kathy - I really love your animated gif.  There is enough water now in most areas of the country.

HI Kathy Streib - It is beautiful before and after.  

It reminds me of some of the areas in Phoenix where the runoff from monsoon can make golf courses and parks into lakes!

It can be amazing how different landscape can appear after little changes in weather patterns.  Sacramento had an elongated winter, but within a week of sunshine and warmer temps, the flowers exploded.

Hi Nina Hollander it was dumb luck that I had the "before" picture.

Hi Lise Howe I think the rain we had here in Houston last week headed east to Florida. 

Sheila Anderson and the problem here is that a lot of the soil is clay so the water just sits there.

Hi Brian England it gives me something to focus on other than my feet pounding away!! lOl Hope that all is well with you. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® do you remember the Montrose area of Houston? I can remember when that flooded years ago and everyone brought out their boats to help with rescues. Just like after Hurricane Harvey.

It sure does feel like the rain will never fully go away here. Every time we have taken the camper out, we get rain.
