We have not had much of a winter, or snow fall… or rain this summer. As a result Blue Ridge Reservoir, our local waterway, has been pretty devoid of water. Our recent fires haven’t helped much, with air support dipping into the reservoir for water needs to put out fires.
Hiking into the river bed revealed the reality of the toll the reservoir has taken, when it was clear that the waterway was not only dry, but dry long enough to be covered with a fresh green grass.
While it was a beautiful hike, it heightened our need for rain… and a good snow fall this winter.
Wow, I had no idea. Great that you can comment on that. I guess they had to do what they had to do to put out that fire.
The fire activity took it’s share of the water.. but it also suffered from just lack of snow and rain . Hopefully we’ll be able to replenish this year.
Thx for checking in.
