I am a trainer with the State of Virginia. I travel throughout the state to teach Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management. I try to take the back roads and I like taking photographs. I am a naturalist, trained in biology and ecology with a very deep rooted love for nature. In this blog I like to share my photography hobby, other hobbies of mine, including my passion for sailing, biking, hiking and nature. I will also share my philosophical outlook on life and some of experience.
It has been a tremendously wet couple of days. Sunday night a rain guage in our neighborhood recorded 5.5 inches of rain in 2 hours, and Monday evening it rained again. It probably only rained 2 inches, but the soil was so saturated that it was flooding all over the place. We live in a neighborhood that was built in a swamp and you can really notice it. But the fun thing about it is the frogs. They came out like gang busters; sitting outside you could hardly understand each other, they were so noisy.
