The pond surfaces have been interesting. There has been a lot of “stuff” growing there that actually looks interesting up close. Every time we get a hard rain it gets flushed away, but it comes back quickly, at least until the colder weather arrives.
People are just going to have to learn that all life changes with changes in the environment. As the climate changes, and the ponds do their job of capturing the run-off from the land and fill up, the changes will accelerate.
