We had a close call this week. Bee Hill came perilously close to being under water. A ferocious storm blew through -- lightning struck so close the house shook -- and the rain poured down Tuesday night, and part of the day Wednesday. Our plans of expanding to two smaller hills on another part of the property dissolved upon the discovery that they were submerged. Mark couldn't resist the opportunity to wade out and snap a few pictures. Clearly, his boots were not tall enough for the task!
