Recent heavy rains washed this two-by-twelve down the creek.

It lodged behind our stepping stones, and we pried it loose to dry on the shore before we haul it home.

The board will make a good shelf for heavy objects.  Or maybe it will become part of a nest box in the new starplate coop.

Jim--- Unfortunately, this is a very flat creek (almsot no head), so the only type of hydropower setup that's appropriate would require damming it. I'm pretty sure that would be illegal without permits, and I wouldn't want to make a dam anyway since it would mess with the ecosystem too much.
