Flood aftermath

The aftermath of the flood

The aftermath of the flood reveals no major damage, though I had to clear a lot of debris off the footbridge.  At least four snails seemed to have survived washing down the creek, and I carefully plucked them to safety on the shore before brushing the rest of the debris back into the water.  I pondered whether it would be worth it to harvest all of the sticks for mulch --- maybe next time.

I know... :-/ Most of it seems to be empty water and soft drink bottles, which always look almost useful to me. I need to think of a way to turn them into something cool, then I'll have an incentive to pull them out of the creek as they float past!
