Winter Storm Olive — You were Bad


While other areas received Snow and Ice, we stayed in the ‘warm sector’ and got lots of rain.

Lots of rain

Fortunate for us — not so much so for the ice storm areas in N Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, or the inundation of snow in Minnesota

Centurian about to set off to investigate the North Fork River

As expected, the River has exceeded its Banks

Cornstalk Rubble has accumulated

Fairly minor flooding compared to what has happened in the past

Prior to the flooding:



North Fork seems to be a favorite site for Refuse disposal  🙁

Can you spot the little green Ball in the Rubbish?

Be interesting to see how much of that washed downstream

    The rain looked nice. I’m going to post a few pictures of our frozen rain soon. It wasn’t so nice. Lots of shoveling and no bike riding.

    So much rain!!!! Glad it wasn’t ice and snow, though.
    Didn’t find the little green ball. 🙁

      There could be a good reason why you didnt find the little green ball — that photo must have been drawn thru a wormhole in cyberspace.
      It is back in captivity — I think!! 😉

    It took me a while but with big enlarging, I did find the ball ;’-).
    Even we are due for some more snow this week, and rain? Oh well,
    Cold in the 20s in the early morning warms to low 30s for the afternoon. Come on winter – be done!
