Look at my poor little Icon Island now!
The water has risen like another foot since last weekend. The lake was a rare dead calm this morning, which is a good thing for people who live along the shore. Hundreds of homes are being damaged and many people can't even get home right now, and the lake continues to rise. At this rate, my island will just be some trees growing out of the water in another week. I've been out all morning taking photos because this is truly a record setting spring around here.
The first hummingbird of the year just hummed into the feeder right beside me, which is hanging about two feet from my desk on the other side of a screen. It is a most welcome sight.
