It rained so much yesterday and during the night that I just had to go down to the creek to see how much the water level had risen. I know this is the day the hunters go out but I also know that they always are quite late so I had plenty of time to go there before they even were thinking of getting up from their beds🙂
The Forbidden Forest.
Bertil has been hesitating to follow us these last days and today I learned why, the new neighbor have gotten two cats from a friend whose children gotten allergic to them and I think that both Bertil and Teodor have been adjusting to the new situation. No hesitation today though and I think I know why too, one of the new cats sat way up in a tree and my guess is that the two brothers done their best to put some respect in the new ones🙂
This is how it looked on Friday.
This is how it looked this morning.
I could see already when we came down to the creek that the water level now is on a critical hight. It’s so high now that the path we always walk on was covered by the water now. In fact it is so high that I couldn’t pass the ditch I always pass when going out to the fields, we had to walk 100 meters (much the same in yards) up that ditch in to the wild hogs realm to be able to come out to the fields at all🙂
So I guess that if the rain doesn’t stop falling soon the time of the beavers will be over quite soon. I know that they still are there though because I could hear splashes from their tails when we walked along the now river out on the fields. Just as we came home the sun started to shine and the hunters drove by to the forest.
The small wooden bridge couldn’t be found :-)
This is what I usually walk on when going out on the fields.
Now thick clouds cover the sky again and soon the rain will start to fall. I doubt I’ll get those lightchains up in the tree today, I simply refuse to do it when it’s pouring down🙂 Instead I’ll make a pot of tea and watch some dvd’s I think. But firstly I’ll do the laundry and then perhaps I’ll take a small nap.
Today it looked like this🙂 It’s 20 cm (8 inches) below water.
Have a great day!
