Swimming Hole

We've had a lot of rain over the last week. So much that roads are flooded and some homes are threatened throughout eastern Ontario. Couple that with spring temperatures and runoff due to incompletely thawed ground and you get something like this:

Sad, isn't it? However it is not as bad as it looks. Soon enough the water level will drop and the rest will be pumped out. Then the debris in the hole will be removed. The concrete work on two holes was completed in the fall which leaves two swimming holes (this one and one more) yet to be converted into tower foundations.

Soon enough that anchor you see will hold 2,000 kg of tension, its share of holding up a big beautiful tower. For now I thought some readers might enjoy this view of my impromptu swimming hole. The full story of planting this tower will come when I've got it done. With a little bit of luck that should happen by early May.
