Our lot has a ditch between us and the road that has been mostly dry for the last 30 years. Ever since the Great Flood of 2013 there has mostly been a steady stream of water throughout the year (except in the dead of winter).  I like the changes that the flood brought - a higher water table, little streams that were never there before, constant sump pumping by my neighbors who built basements.  Everything is lush and bigger and flowering like never before.  The air feels fuller and carries scents, unlike the dry air that I've lived with for years.

Love the water.
