So much for that positive spin I tried to put on the rainstorm. Upstream from Shofuso the water diverter was completely clogged with leaves, large sticks, and even a construction cone. Inside, the stream banks are a little eroded and the newly planted irises that hadn’t completely rooted are either gone or laying on their sides. I’m not quite sure how high the water level got last night, but there is debris on the island. Nothing that can’t be fixed.
At least this bullfrog is enjoying the extra water.
