Trying to hold on, coping with those August floods

Holding On For Dear Life
That was then. This is now -- August, 2007, and even the wooly bear caterpillars are having to scramble to find shelter from the rising flood waters. Photo taken along County Hwy B, just outside Cambridge, this morning. At the office I heard that Cambridge, just a few miles east of Madison, had 4.5 inches of rain last night (while Madison escaped most of it -- these storms have tended to be highly localized).

that's a very sweet photo.

Cute photos. I assume this is one of those "How many caterpillars can you find?" picture puzzles. I detect just two. I'll check back tomorrow for the correct answer. My optomestrist just advised me to consider bifocals; if the total is more than 12, I'm off to Lenscrafters.

I like the photo, but my first thought was actually a linguistic one... I don't think I've ever called these "wooly bears." Where I grew up, in another Midwestern state, they were "wooly worms." I love these little regional differences...
