Falling Creek

After a long day of running high and submerging the dock, Fall Creek is falling.  Only the upper left corner of the dock remains under a little bit of water.  The snow has been largely melted for a couple of days, but it took some time for the water to filter down through the ground and out into the creek through the groundwater system.  And just in time, too, because it's getting a bit colder out there, and we're looking at the potential for a light dusting of snow tonight as a storm passes to our south.  The snowboard is ready, and I've found a new, taller stick to mark it.  It's become warped a bit, curling into an arc by the dampness.  I don't think that will affect the snowfall measurement tomorrow - if there's anything worth measuring.
