This is what we spend the rest of the year preparing for. After a dry summer, this amount of water seems inconceivable. But it happens. Living off of rainwater makes us cherish every drop. Then sometimes the water just keeps flowing and flowing and it’s hard for our brains to really absorb. So we took some video to remind ourselves of the necessity of the watershed restoration work that we do.
I’m not saying that every carefully placed rock stayed in it’s intended location. But we weathered the storm fairly well. Floods like this dictate our work on the land for the next season. I can tell you that our “to-do” list is overflowing along with all our cisterns. And it’s a good life with plenty of water and green.
