Well, it floods Wolf Creek for one thing:
Those trees are not supposed to be under water.
The melting snow makes little rivers in the field, complete with a really cool ice bridge:
And, all of that melting snow makes a lot of mud.
The photos were taken by my husband, who took a walk with the boys across the fields to check out the water that we can see from the house. Normally, we can see the trees that show where Wolf Creek is, but we cannot see the water. Not so this week. It’s been so lovely to have temps in the 40s and 50s, even if it does mean mud.
Don’t worry, we are in no danger from the flood waters of Wolf Creek.
