With the large quantity of precipitation we’ve had over the last few weeks and all of the snow melt, our very seasonal creek (only in times of heavy precipitation) has joined us again. It is a welcome occurrence on our property as we love the sound of the roaring water.
We enjoyed a small flow of water in the late fall which hung around for a few weeks until it dried up. The creek then reemerged, waterfalls, small rapids and all, early this month when the snow started to melt and grew even larger with the heavy rain we had over the last 2 days.
The first 2 years we had this property we had no noticeable water flow in this area so it varies greatly from year to year.
And all of the bitingly cold water leaves our property.
It’s too bad we don’t have a year round creek similar to this…how wonderful it would be to utilize some of it’s power to generate hydro electricity.
