Apr 14 - Whirlpool (103/365)

Now this is something you don't see every day! The photo from yesterday was a corn field under a few feet of flood water. The geese and ducks were at the far east side of the field.

There is a drain that lets the water off of the field, under the road and to the other side. Imagine how much water it takes to fill the river, go up and over the banks, cross miles of farm land, be draining from the field fast enough to cause this whirlpool AND be enough water to keep this field FULL of water 24/7. It has been like this for weeks now.

This water goes on and on and on and on. Here is another drain just south of the first one. As you can see here, the water is draining as fast as it is pouring in.

It's quite the sight.
