Well, we knew there was an occasional creek running through our property when we bought it, and today we have proof. It rained most of the night, and now Cow Creek really is a creek. Here are a few photos showing the water level after 1.5 inches of rain overnight. It confirms that the back yard isn’t very usable, as it is subject to occasionally being underwater, but we had already figured that out before we moved, so it’s not a big deal. They say that if we get 10 inches in 12 hours we might have something to worry about; time will tell, I suppose, but for now we’re not terribly concerned.
