You have probably noticed that I haven’t posted in nearly two weeks. The weather has been damp, drizzly, and cool at times. That didn’t bother me much, but it limited my visits to my favorite areas. But the big news is, we have had in the past couple days around 5 inches of rain on the watersheds to our O. C. Fisher Reservoir. The lake was a dry bed, and now in the last 48 hours has become a huge bodyof water with an elevation rise of 18 feet. And the water is still flowing into it from the North Concho river that crested at 20 feet above flood stage yesterday, the highest rise since 1974. I took a look at the lake yesterday afternoon, and it has the most water I have seen since 2007. A long way to go to be completely full, but it is definitely a first step. More rain is forecast for the following week.
So, I am going to just post the photographs that I have managed to get since the last edition, during short visits to various locations around the area. I hope you enjoy, and click on any image to see enlargements.
