I knew that it was going to be a hot day so I started out early. It was already humid and I knew there would be a race to see which got close to a 100 first. It was time to hit the pond early and have everything done before the heat hit hard.

We had an inch or rain yesterday and I had thought I might be able to drive into a pond, but he rain fried that idea. Hiking in I found three places where water was standing, with a few inches of very soft, slick mud under it. When I got to the pond I saw that the water was lower than I expected. When I looked at the drain pipe I found that it had collapsed. The water had cut down about a foot and a half below where the hole is and that means that means the water was lower.
