Rising Water

This makes the third week in a row that my day off falls on a monsoon, so the kayak stays in the garage. I don't get along well with heavy rains and rivers anymore. I can't/won't complain about the rain, it's too precious to this parched land. We had a reservoir that had gone dry a few years ago, and after Monday nights 12 hour downpour, it's near half full capacity as of this morning. It was a great kayaking lake. Last time we could get a yak on it was 2008.
But with that amount of rain all at once, comes the inevitable flooding. We had lots of stranded cars in town, but no serious injuries or problems.
I have made it a point to get out with my camera gear around the area if I can't get out in the yak. So last week was a relaxing look at the South Concho. This week is a look at the North and Middle Concho when mother nature gets riled up. We had a great time shooting Tuesday, and watching our lakes fill up.

Here's a short video from yesterday.
