Newly-formed Lake Bronson
The deepest part I discovered was eight inches above my knee. The water was cold and Jane was hesitant.
The water in the adjoining parking lot was quite shallow and as warm as bath water.
Walking on water...or submerged park benches.
Due to the eleven inches of rain and a creek overspilling its banks, Bronson Hospital (in the background) now boasts private rooms with lake view. This use to be a large grass field.
We live five minutes from the hospital, but with the flooded roads it took Ben 45 minutes to get to work.
Well, a nice policeman thought I was crazy to let my kids wade and play in "stagnant" water, but the water was irresistible even to this grown-up. And it was doctor approved. Frankly, I was only to pleased to get their bathing suits and fritter away an afternoon at the park. We had so much fun that I took them twice within a few days.
Emily is thrilled Cubbies has started again.
