Last year, restoration on our "lake" began (it's a long, long story but I guess it needed to be done). I say "lake" because it's not really a lake ~ more like a small pond. Anyway, it was drained and scraped and dirt was moved around and a little dirt was actually hauled away. This is what we were left with:
Of course, with the small amount of rain we've gotten this summer, it was just enough to allow renegade vegetation to grow. Very sad looking.
So, now you know why we are looking forward to T.S. Fay. I hope she leaves us with a lot of rain, at least enough to cover up the dirt mound left in the middle of the lake so at least it looks like a lake and not a marsh.
