Some flood pics of Willow Creek:
It's been wet in our neck of the woods! The rain has been constant. The Southcentral region of Alaska has experienced four or five storms in less than two weeks. The rivers and creeks are flooding, cutting off roads and breaking bridges apart. Talkeetna was evacuated after the Susitna River backed up the Talkeetna River and breached the town's levies. The creek that runs through our property, Lily Creek is as big as I've ever seen it. Up over the banks and streaming through the willows. Pretty incredible. Our kennels are on high ground and not in any danger of flooding but my thoughts are with the mushers on the Kenai and in Talkeetna who have been flooded out. Strange weather! The temps have been high, too. 61 degrees the other day! At the end of September.
Training is going well, if wet. I am trying to figure out an appropriate training schedule and set some goals for the race season.
