Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

Liquid, liquid, lots and lots of liquid in the form of a torrential downpour clogged street drains causing the rain water to back up a foot deep into the street. The pressure of the rainwater coursing through the sewer caused the water to back up and spew upward out the culvert. We were lucky. The water did not reach our house. The houses in this photo were not so fortunate and had water in their basements.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

Prolific. What an appropriate word for what we go through each summer for several weeks. The white tufts from the cottonwood tree in our backyard and those that abut the creek bed down the street from us, fly through the air much the same as snow does in the winter, and piles up the same way. A fact I learned today…our tree must be a female, as only the female trees shed their cottony seeds.
