First picture was 9am this morning, second was about 3pm... it's rising. Gone up about a foot today. If we tried it on the horses, it would be about half way up her belly, so about 3 feet deep - with barn wire fences on both sides, it's just not safe.
Our wonderful neighbour is out there right now trying to widen the ditches. The road that the tractor is on is a side view of our road, we rode the horses out to see if it was possible to get around it. It's not. At least Nova was enjoying the water after a time. Hopefully the sun shines tomorrow and dries the fields up enough to let me drive out.
No hay mal que dure 100 años
Así como un día de furia el agua subió para devorarse el pueblo de Villa Epecuén, 25 años después comenzó a bajar lentamente.
Hoy en día las ruinas de lo que fue una pueblo en crecimiento se han convertido en un centro turístico para aquellos curiosos qué desean ver lo que puede hacer la furia de la naturaleza combinada con la negligencia del hombre.
La pregunta sería, se podría construir de nuevo el pueblo sobre las ruinas? Mi opinión como filosofía de vida es un rotundo sí.
Cuantas veces nos caemos y creemos qué esta todo perdido? Qué no hay vuelta atrás, que esta vez metimos la pata hasta el fondo y qué no vamos a salir de esta.
Y sin embargo el día menos pensado el agua comienza a retroceder.
Puede qué no tengas que esperar 25 años, pueden ser menos, pueden ser más, nadie sabe con certeza. Pero como dicen, no esta muerto quien pelea.
La clave está en resistir porque por más nublado que esté el sol siempre está ahi atrás, la vida es un ciclo de subidas y bajadas, nada permanece constante, todo esta en movimiento.
Siempre hay una nueva oportunidad aguardando a la vuelta de la esquina , quizás no la veas con claridad al principio pero créeme que está ahí.
Resiste, se fuerte, no te rindas! 💪
If you don't remember Rick Scott (because he's one of the many forgettable older white men with a large amount of power to put policies into place to mess up our lives), he's the governor of Florida and is know for banning the use of the words climate change, global warming and sustainability from any official communication, emails, or reports. For years, Scott has refused to address the issue of climate change — even going so far as to tell reporters “I’m not a scientist” when asked his opinion on the subject in 2014.
Florida is at growing risk from climate change. Miami Beach, which has seen worsening seasonal flooding, has already spent $125 million to keep its streets dry. Those high tides aren't going to get to smaller. New research from NOAA shows Miami streets could flood every single day by 2070 under many climate models.
Eight young Florida residents are the named plaintiffs in a lawsuit that seeks to force a state extremely vulnerable to climate-driven sea rise to start work on a court-ordered, science-based "Climate Recovery Plan." In the suit, Reynolds and her lawyers accuse Scott and his administration of rolling back or failing to implement any legislation aimed at measuring or cutting back on carbon emissions, as well as ignoring the threat of rising seas on the state's coasts, which provide the economic engine for the tourism-dependent state.
In response to the suit, a spokesperson for Gov. Scott released a statement:
“The Governor signed one of the largest environmental protection budgets in Florida’s history last month – investing $4 billion into Florida’s environment,” they said. “The Governor is focused on real solutions to protect our environment — not political theater or a lawsuit orchestrated by a group based in Eugene, Oregon.” (Source: Miami Herald, New York post)

Wellllll the Chocolate and Art Show was one for the books. It was a two day event but the weather really messed up the second day with heavy rain & flooding. It was fun walking thru knee deep water with all my art at 1:30 AM 😅🎨 #Houston#chocolateandartshow#art#artist#flooding
Happy Earth Day Friend! 🌎🌈 I am so proud to call Hawaii my home. 🌺 I want to raise awareness of what’s going on in my home state: Due to recent heavy rains, the islands have seen extreme flooding, mostly affecting the upper island chain, Kauai and Oahu. Kauai received the most rainfall, around 31” in about 24 hours time. The land became over saturated, and the flooding began. People’s homes have washed into the ocean, animals like bison, horses, dogs and others got swept into the rivers and out to sea. People began taking advantage of the situation, charging $200 for boat rides for people seeking shelter and safety. It’s a horrible time. Many organizations are raising money for Hawaii, most specifically Kauai since they were hit very hard. 🌧 If you want to help, please visit MalamaKauai.org to for more information.
