I was going to take the day off, I figured 15 miles was good enough for the weekend, but last night Kay asked to go out for a short kayak trip. So we decided on Ashville Bridge Creek, because I thought it would be interesting to see how much the water level had dropped in 2 days. Well it seems like a few others had the same idea, because when we got to Lotus Pond Park, there were 3 other vehicles with racks, and another showed up while we were unloading.
The parking lot was mostly dry, with just a bit of mud around the edges, looking at the gage, it looks like the water has dropped almost a foot. The majority of Lotus were above the water, and the creek appears to be returning to normal. As we headed through the lotus, the easy path is now on the West side of the creek, I am almost certain that the storm moved the plants across the creek. It will be interesting to see the results next year, if the plants return in the original location, as well as the new location. The East side of the creek seems to be more shaded, which may be a bad thing...
Other then that, everything on the creek appears to be returning to normal, although it seems that the Bass are hitting hard at the bridge...
