The long drought that ended today caused the water levels of our water reservoir Lake Monroe to drop so much that the usual impassable lakeshore became easily walkable, allowing a detour from my pandemic hike, the Pate Hollow Trail.
I took the last opportunity, and the clouds were worth it. Landscape and soul can become one.
Heavy rain today and tomorrow will soak the firm beach,
but to restore the water to its normal level, we would need more like 40 days of rain.
The wood seems to be waiting.
