Heavy Spring Rain 5/13/10
I had posted this in the Blog but I thought it was important to show that when a person plans for a vineyard they have to take in what will heavy snow or water do to my land and will it pool? The cause of what you see in the picture was heavy rains on top of the rain showers we have had on and off all that week had dumped a little over an inch of rain in about 1 1/2 hours so the creek on the backside of the property flooded, the good news was is that only grass was underwater and it gave me a chance to see what the yard would look like in flood stage. Looks like I had good planning (some luck, no one can fully plan for floods) as far as the vineyard placement. It was still high and dry after the heavy rain.
