Spring Flooding

My recent post about ducks hanging out in our backyard during the Spring reminded me of when an unusual amount of water flowed through the drainage area at the bottom of our property.

There is a small drainage area between our property and the neighbors. In a normal spring, there is a small flow of water. However, in 2013, there was a markedly larger flow.

The water pooled in our backyard.

And it pooled in our neighbor’s backyard.

The water encroached on the neighbor’s garage. Their backyard was very soggy that spring.

Although I have no photos, the mallards could frequently be seen paddling around in pond that had formed in ours and the neighbors’ yards.
