Then the Rains Came to Ookala

The end of December it RAINED!! Actually it poured...the highway was closed, the dairy lost power and we were unable to work. It rained during the next thirty days approximately 60 inches. For obvious reasons much of our time was spent dealing with rain damage and diverting water flow. Everything that was able to be filled with water was full and mud was everywhere.

Processing pit full and overflowing with rain water.

We had some clear days in between storms.
