Ten days ago, the flow of water from Lake Wingra to Wingra Creek over the Wingra Dam had completely stopped, because the water level of the lake had fallen below the dam spillway. This is what it looked like then. How nice to get a little moisture!

Like lemmings following the herd over the cliff, we followed a group of people from the parking lot taking a shortcut across Mineral Point Road down this hillside. The grass was slippery, the slope steep, but we picked our way carefully down the hill. Nobody fell, and we all jaywalked across Mineral Point Road. It was the "as the crow flies" route to the concert, sparing the longer -- and safer -- trek back up to Rosa Road.
