And Flood Again

Just a couple of weeks after our fence destroying flood, we flooded again. This time I was able to get pictures of the pasture and hay fields during the worst of it. ALL the water you see, ALL THE WAY TO THOSE TREES, is flooded Illinois Bayou. Normally, the river is on the other side of that tree line......WOW! Some of this water is up to four feet deep. They say the river floods like this about once every 25 years. (These are what we call our "bottoms". Our home and barns are about 1/4 mile from the river on higher ground and were not involved at all.)
