The pattern I described in earlier posts has continued. It rains hard and the water in the creek area rises and has a current and then if there is no rain for a couple hours, the water disappears and the ground becomes muddy.
We have never had enough rain for the creek to look like a lake the way it did the first time I wrote about it. Those storms were unusual enough to have severe weather warnings.
Several days last week, it rained for so many hours that there were puddles of water on the ground outside of the window of my apartment.
When I looked at the creek, I saw that once again it had water that had a current.
Twice that day when I looked at the creek from my window, I saw that there were two adult ducks swimming in it. Neither time did I have my phone camera handy.
The next day it did not rain. Once again, the area where the creek had been was just muddy ground.
