The water came yesterday around three o’clock in the afternoon. I was just finishing up one of my flower beds when I walked past the canal and saw the back hoe and a large pile of moving brush, dust flying in the midst of water
The water had come!
Terry headed up to watch and I dropped everything and headed up the canal to get photos of this very exciting event
The backhoe grabbed huge chunks of weeds to keep from flooding the farms along the way
Gradually the back hoe started to get the water clearer
The arrival of water!
Gradually the water cleared
We gathered up our shovels, and headed out to start the water on the farm! Which meant, of course, we had to clean all our ditches from the trash coming down the canal and into our ditches
But oh my how it was worth all the work.
The New Year has Begun!
