The Dry Creek Bed Filled With Winter Rain

I had not realized just how much rain we've had recently until I heard the dry creek bed behind the house this morning as I first entered the kitchen to make coffee.



Even the dry spring just down from the house has come alive ...




And here's that dry stream bed ...


And a bonus shot, looking out toward the far ridge ...

And now as I get ready to post these pics, that far ridge is completely obscured by clouds.
I love days like this one; the rare sound and sights of the dry stream bed filled with rushing water, the roar of the creek down below the house, the old spring coming alive, the clouds filling the cove.
