High Water, Again

The temperatures are in the 50s today and it is raining.  It feels like fall arrived all at once.  To make matters worse, my internet was down for over an hour and interrupted my early morning routine.

The ground is soaked, and the creek is high, and out of its banks again.  If we get a hard cloud burst and flash flooding, the bridges could easily get washed out again.  I drove around and checked, and the water is within inches of some of the bridges.  Sorry, for the image quality.  I took some of my images through the car windows.

I am finding that for most of my photography that I can just use prime lenses with little need to change them quickly, but for one thing.  When we have a quickly changing event like the past flooding, etc., a WR zoom lens that goes from wide to narrow would be handy.  I have refrained from getting the Fujifilm 18-135mm lens for such times due to the cost for such a slow lens that would, hopefully, be used rarely.  I don’t think I could use it for indoor events, etc. since it is a slow F3.5 – 5.6 lens.  The 16-55mm F2.8 WR lens would work both in and outside, but a longer focal length would be more useful, and I would prefer it had image stabilization.
