It's not nice to fool Mother Nature

Our Sugar Creek travels from here to the south of Osage on its way to the Cedar River (which is flooding at record levels from Austin, Minnesota all the way down to Cedar Rapids, Iowa). Just before it reaches the Cedar it passes by what’s known as Lime Kiln Road. At some point some years back our county decided to re-route the creek and eliminate a bridge.

Last weekend Sugar Creek decided it liked it’s old route better.

It will be interesting to see what they do with it now.

    good for mother nature. she deserves a little rambunctiousness after all the trouble we have given her. that is, as long as no one got hurt?
