I live on a dead end street, that didn’t start that way. In 1972 just over 15 inches of rain fell in about 6 hours over the Rapid Creek watershed, and the result was one of the most deadly floods in the Midwest, with 243 souls lost. In the aftermath, the 100 year flood plain was declared off limits for residential housing. My house sits across the street from this boundary, so the street was never rebuilt, and the result is an island of 12 homes that were allowed to remain. This island has a 1.5 lane street to get us to the main street, and is now mostly surrounded by the second 9 holes of the city golf course.
Will you join me for my morning walk with Max?
I seldom tire of this walk, because it is different every single day! If you could hear the birds in the morning…oh my! A joyous time of day!
Thanks for joining me….by the way, we just covered 1.6 miles, so you have gotten a great dose of exercise.
