Weather Or Not

I went down to the Padre Dam area for a geocache yesterday.  It hadn't rained too much yet.  Here are a couple of pics I took:

Or rather, the one image that turned out ok.  Sadly, the picture of the ducks was just too blurry.

Hey, remember you can click the image to see the surely fine quality larger image. The larger image file size is listed under the pics. Some of them are kinda big...

Today there was QUITE a bit more rain.  And wind. So I went back to the dam after work to see if the water was any higher.

I scared off the ducks when I approached, sadly.

There are sometimes more than one image of a scene.  You decide which is right.

Doesn't look like much, but there is definitely more water than yesterday. And it noisier, too.

The area on the left of the part I'm walking on did not have nearly that much water in it yesterday!

Should really be something to see if the water gets higher.

One of these had the flash.  I think this one did not.

Most of these were taken with the iPhone, a couple were take with the Fuji Finepix, I think the last two.

The rain really started coming down on the way home.  I am sure glad I wasn't on the freeway today!  At work I noticed every time I walked over to the office I could hear sirens in the distance.  Goodness!
