The river is still quite creamy, but has receded to a more normal level. Those rocks that were completely submerged are now visible again. We noticed that a white rock that used to be upstream was dislodged and carried downstream (about 80 feet in distance or so). That no doubt contributed to those weird smacking noises we heard. That white rock is pretty big ( approx.18 inches in diameter) so we imagine there are many more, smaller rocks that have moved around as well. Water can be such a powerful force!
Kevin went up to inspect the opening to the aqueduct as soon as he woke up and it's a mess up there: logs and debris have accumulated by the far gate, preventing water from flowing in. Kevin could see where last night's overflow brought in mud. Thank goodness Kevin closed the gate to the aqueduct in time last night or all that mud would have filtered into our nice clean ponds. That would not have been good.
We woke up to blues skies and an intense sun. The French doors are wide open. Who knows what Mother Nature has in store for us later this afternoon, but we say "bring it on."
