What a difference 4 years make.
These pictures were taken on March 20, 2010.
There had been quite a bit of snow in the mountains and the lake above our town needed to release water.
If I am correct in my thinking, that is also when the water capacity of the lake had been lowered because a government agency deemed our dam unsafe.
Anywhooo...when that happened, we had water running in the slough on the edge of our property.
I remember the water being ice cold, but the kids could not pass up the series of events that led to us having riverfront property for a few days.
This picture is taken from the same bank two days ago.
Oh...on a side note...apparently the dam is actually safe now...nothing done to it...just a swipe of a pen in Sacramento.
