We rented our canoes and set out from Chapleau, ON. on the Chapleau River. I suppose there were mosquitoes but I have no memory of that. I do remember that it rained a lot, but mostly overnight.

The canoes were rented in a small remote town in Ontario and we paddled north some 60+ miles to an even more remote town (only accessible by sea plane or train, or canoe). From there we got a ride (with our canoes) on a freight train to a third town where the canoe rental guy met us with our car.  So I thought (see "Things You Thought Today)...

Very cool. but not without challenges. About halfway through the journey we tore a gash in the side of our aluminum canoe going down some rapids. Luckily my brother thought to bring duct tape along and we were able to patch it well enough the finish the trip, carefully avoiding any more rocks. The canoe rental guy wasn't happy but we paid for the damage.

I agreed to be in the pool of potential panelists who hear cases for the U's Office of Equal Opportunity. Had the initial training this morning. Pretty interesting, and enlightening as I reflect back on my "hostile work environment" situation from so many years ago.

I'm intrigued by the back porch roof runoff into the stub wall/flower bed. Is that water collected somewhere? Like a French drain, etc...
We live in a place where there not much run off/ rain.
BUT... we've had some pretty good  thunderstorms in the past. Mostly from dying hurricanes coming up from Baja. The mountain, a block away from us, will flow waterfalls in those bigger downpours. Winter storms are a soaking rain.
The water has filled up the original grass area and little strip in the back about 4" on a couple of occasions. And got to the back slider. Those are the 3" a hour rains... that last an hour.
That little strip off the patio is now about 6" lower than before. So it can contain way more water than before.
Everything is set up for drainage toward the grassy area.  And it soaks into the ground real quick when it stops raining. Under the rock there's a membrane that let's water in and keeps the weeds out. Those rocks are about 3"- 4" deep.

Probably the birds.

He needs to order some parts for the windmill. Then rent a lift  so we can get up there without dying and reassemble it.
