Spectacular Time Lapse Video of Historic Dam Removal
"For 98 years, the 125-foot high Condit Dam in southeastern Washington State held back the White Salmon River, creating a serene lake, but choking off the waterway to salmon. Wednesday, in an historic effort, the dam was dramatically breached, and ecologists hope the increased flow of water will restore the waterway to fish and other aquatic organisms, as well as the birds and mammals that rely on them."
Did you see how much sediment came out the bottom of that dam? I hope trees and grasses get planted all along the bank in an attempt to stop that lovely stuff from running off into the ocean.
Paraphrasing Loren, cream in milk and feces in water rise to the top. Skim the cream off to make butter, skim the feces off to make fertilizer. Both have value even as one smells so much better than the other.
What a task to take on. I fully expected one or more of the tractors to disappear into the new hole. I wonder how they came up with that configuration of tractors; it worked beautifully!
I assume you are hand-digging your lilacs, Daniel. hard, hard work! You must be exhausted!
Good to return from my short trip and see Spud's name added to the comments here. Sorry his situation is what it is.
And I feel so sorry for Barbara. Setbacks can be discouraging.
Glad you're all right, Spud, and I hope things will get easier for you!
Daniel, I enjoyed the adorable little atheist gardener video. Too bad it's no longer available.
Thanks Bertold. And, thank you all for your concern. That's what I meant in my first post, but after reading it again, it could be interpreted that I was only thanking Joan.
December has been colder than normal. Got down to negative 10° F one morning, but temperatures are back to normal, or above now. The high temps are going to rise above freezing this week.
Spud, great to hear from you again. Happy new year and I hope all's well with you.
Spud, I am so glad to read your comment today! I understand your struggle to make contact and in no way scold you for that. I m just relieved you did not get hit by a huge truck and turn into compost!
What has your winter been treating you?
We had a lovely snowfall that regenerated the water storage in the mountains. We now experience a thaw that is a little too fast. We may have some flooding. I hope the temperatures drop just a little until the soils begin to soften and then give us a nice, slow snow melt. Wishing is the best I can do to control the weather. Whatever comes, comes.
Take good care, Spud. I/we miss you.
