If you’ve ever been in my back yard, you know that this is definitely not how it’s supposed to look. I woke up this morning and almost fell over when I saw the new pond behind the house. This is a picture taken from the door on the back of the house, so the viewpoint of the camera is the outside wall of the house. That’s how close the water is right now. Our property borders the Hop River and we expect a certain amout of spring flooding, but when the river comes knocking on the back door, I get a little scared.
