Soggy Summer

It rained twice as much as normal in June - 4 inches fell on June 28.  
That's a lot of water.

The first section of my neighbor's dock does not float.  That was fine last year.

On June 29 that first section washed away.
He told me the hull on his boat has damage from collision with large logs that floated downstream.

With all the rain and wind the dead Ash is loosing large limbs.  
This one must have weighed 100 pounds.  I put in a work order to our lawn service, but did not have much hope of them coming out soon.  
A few days ago I came home to find our neighbor had sawed it into 1 1/2 foot sections.  He helped me carry it all to the wood pile.   
He also keeps the thistle and other weeds out of his yard; best neighbor ever.

There was a pile of logs and sticks - and a few 2 x 4's - along the lowest level of the lawn.   The water level must have risen over the seawall.
That has never happened since we moved here in 1993.
