Taking advantage of the drought

Today, I ventured out into the swamp in front of the house with the Cat. Most of the swamp has dried up to nothing. The collapse of a beaver dam which kept the water in, plus the drought, has emptied the swamp in all but one area.

So, I can now drive safely in summer where two winters ago I put the skid steer through the ice in three feet of water.

The drought is kind of sad. Weeds are growing up around the edge of the swamp.
