Before, After, and What Could Have Been

Here's Nelson coming home from work in April 2001. When the water rose too high, he left the Mazda at the corner, put on his wading boots and walked home following the road and driveway.

Note the shack in the back ground - it's the one we use on the Prairie Chicks blog. :)

I was out and about tonight taking 'after the flood' pics and I saw this on the side of the road. It's either a fish or someone pointing the way south.

Looking east, this is our driveway when the flood was at it's highest - during the Easter weekend.

This is what our driveway looked like today.

But, this is what we avoided. It's a pic taken back in April 2001 when we had our last flood.

Nelson put a pole to designate the drain that crosses under the road. Note the top of the fence post 4 to the left of it.

The road going north on the worst day of the flood this year.

This is the road north today.

This is what the road north looked like in the spring of 2001.

The Red Winged Blackbirds have staked out their territories. I love their song.


  1. Gorgeous! You really should publish your photography. And I choose to believe it's a fish. Ixthus to be exact.

  2. Hey Kel, thank you very much!

    Yes, I agree. I actually see Jesus every where I look. :)


Come on, tell me what you think...
