Its Been Raining

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

A few weeks ago, I made a post on how it's been drought-level-dry in my neck of the woods. Apparently, that's the modern day equivalent of a rain dance. The skies opened up and we've been getting drenched (including a bout of precipitation from a tropical storm) every day since.

For a visual aid in the earlier post, I shot some photos of the little pond in my back yard. Here's the original photo from May 21st.

A water retension pond with a lower water level

Here's a shot from roughly the same place taken today (June 14th).

The same view with a much higher water level

I don't know how deep the pond is, but it wouldn't surprise me if the volume of water has doubled between the shots. For another comparison, check the water level at the overflow drain.

Before:

A view of an overflow drain on the pod with the water well below it

After:

A similar view with the water at the drain level

I couldn't shoot that one from the same location. I would have had to have been chest deep in the water.

Debugging Stuff

I'm moving stuff around right now. All this below is helping me figure out where to put stuff
