I just watched your slide show and enjoyed it tremendously. You did a nice job of it, which I mentioned in my comments on over there.

The pond looks great. You should be in really good position to get your seed planted pretty soon too. I know that until I had grass all around my pond, it was just a mud hole, but with the grass, it transformed into a place of beauty.

It's not how many ideas you have, but how many you make happen.

3/4 and 4 acre ponds.

Dave, Randal cannot afford another child who spends all my money on ponds. I have more toys to buy.

But on the plus side, nothing caught fire.

I always consider that a good thing with my Son.

I think we got close to an inch and a half of rain. That probably brought the pond up 6 to 12 inches maybe more. I should have some pictures by next monday.

I am guessing around 2.5 inches. That should bring the water level up a foot or two.

Edit: Make that 3-4 inches of rain. If they pond is not full it is really close.

My dad called me today and said that our friend went and looked at the pond. He said that it was full and water was running out of the pipe.

CONGRATULATIONS...!!!!
Just got the same report for Delta County Chris - water flowing through syphon system.
First flush in a couple of years.

Wonder if Frank's pond filled?

I think he said his watershed was around 25 acres so I doubt it is full but it gained a lot of water.

Talked to Frank via PM. He said his pond came up 4 feet and has 5 feet to go.

Thanks guys.

While we were building the pond we cut about a foot off of the pipe because we were going to have to move to much dirt. A couple weeks later my dad decided he wanted the pond bigger so we are going to add some more pipe to raise the water level. The pipe will be just below the spillway enough for it to run full bore before the water goes out the spillway.

Chris, your and Franks ponds are a special tribute to "Regional" PB field trips.
Many thanks to the both of you.
