The pond has completely dried up. As I write this dark clouds are filling the sky and we have a high chance of storms tonight. I sure hope we finally get some. For some reason, once a year, in the fall, they mow down all the plants that grow up around the pond. I have no idea why. While I was out for a walk and talking on the phone I realized I could just walk right on out to the dry pond bed. I wandered around the cracked dirt and talking. I jogger running by stopped and looked at me like I was crazy. I waved at them.  I took a few pictures.
