Partly Rainy, Partly Sunny

I was at the spillway on Sunday, when the bottom fell out of the sky.  It started pouring rain (photo above) so I headed out.  When I got to the dam, I could see it was still raining hard on the spillway side of the lake, but it was dry and sunny on the other side.  It was really beautiful (the picture below doesn’t do it justice).

New Spillway Rules

When I arrived at the spillway area on Wednesday afternoon, shortly after 5:00, the place was empty…no people, no dogs.  I was taking pictures of some birds when I heard a vehicle cross the spillway, and I snapped the photo, shown above, of a Public Safety vehicle going by.  I guess that Public Safety is patrolling to make sure the new off leash dog hours are followed.

From the Trail Camera

This trail camera takes color pictures during the day, but takes black and white pictures in low light situations. Sometimes the black and white ones are my favorites. This one seemed very serene.

I had the song “Polk Salad Annie” running through my head while watching the tiny hummingbird. Polk salad (aka poke sallet) is made from the leaves of pokeweed. Here’s an old video of Tony Joe White singing Polk Salad Annie that I found on YouTube:

“Rumor Has It”

We should produce a Bent Tree TV series…an investigative reality show called “Rumor Has It”, where the rumors are investigated for their origin and validity, and laid to rest one way or another.
