After 2.3" of rain overnight, more water than I've seen yet this winter is flowing through the little creek that runs at the back of our yard.

A little blue sky while on our afternoon walk.
Sky was overcast most of the day, but some blue shown through during our afternoon walk.

Temperature range:  51°/40°.    44° @ midnight.  .8" rain today.  2.8" rain for the month.

Summary:  Rain fell during the early morning ... overcast AM ... mostly cloudy to overcast PM ... light to moderate south wind ... laying/switching during evening.

I love the look of your little creek?

P.s. that was supposed to be an eclaimation point at the end of that last sentence! Keyboarding on my cell touch pad is tricky at best!

Lovely views but it is kind of scary seeing that running bamboo approach your creek.

Marvin said...

Funny that you should mention the bamboo, Lisa. The little creek runs across a rock slab. That solid rock was supposed to block the bamboo's expansion into our yard. However, while taking these photos, I noticed bamboo roots have grown more than half way across the gap.

It's kind of special to have a creek running through your back yard!

I guess the bamboo is an even trickier invasive plant than I had thought.

Happy New Year Marvin.
What a lovely little creek, I bet that attracts all sorts of wildlife to your yard.
