The following photos are the results of what the
back of our property looks like after we get a
hard rain measuring 4 1/2 inches. The property
across the street was being developed then they
ran into trouble and went bankrupt. They had dug
a pond to hold the water which has filled up with
red mud and the result is that we get a deluge of
red water that nearly washes our bridges away.
It sounds like a raging river.
We needed the rain and I am thankful God
sent us some . I would love to see the clear
water running behind our house not this muddy

You can see one of our bridges at the left of
this photo.

A better view of the bridge.

Looks like a mess. Doesn't it seem everything comes at once or is so extreme? Hope there isn't too much damage.

And we can't get a drop here. It's floods or famine with Mother Nature isn't it?
Actually I would even take the "muddy" water right now. Sorry about your mess. Hope it slows down for you. Could your freeze it and send some to us?

I remember when I was little and could go down and play in that "creek" after a rain. The water was so nice and clear back then.
