Flooded Out

We have had frigid temperatures followed by a sudden thaw and lots of rain.  The river flooded and was roaring by today.  It must have gone up a foot or more.  There were no ducks or geese on the water – I saw just one pair standing on a log above the torrent – and I figured most other animals were probably in shelter as well.  The beavers were on the river bank, though, apparently washed out of whatever home they use.  They both shifted a bit and are watching me but I moved on as quickly as possible.
