We've now set a record---6 floods in the space of 15 months. Part of the problem is that West Michigan had near record snow for 2 winters and near record rainfall for the past year or so. This morning John and I kayaked through the wooded wetland across the road from our house. We can kayak the whole 1 mile of Abrigador trail--have never done that before. Here's a photo of me in the woods and another of our house.

This one is taken from the road in front of our house. Our house is and island; the only dry land is part of our yard that faces the river. Our 2 vehicles are up on high ground.
