Photos by Bill Heimbrock
It rained all morning and part of the afternoon. Bill Heimbrock visited the site in the afternoon to drain the lake with additional ditches.
Here is a picture of "Lake Rafinesque" after all the rain and before the ditches.
Here is the ditch that was dug on Sunday (lower left). You can see that the pavement is dry where it feeds the ditch. Apparently, the Rafinesquina pavement slopes slightly toward the rear of the site, preventing it from draining.
This photo shows how well "Lake Rafinesque" was drained Tuesday. Bill Heimbrock used a broom to sweep the water into the ditches.
This photo shows one of the other trenchs that was dug Tuesday.
