The pond is a giant mud puddle. I have no idea if the fish survived the storm or if they were washed away in the deluge. I've been running the pump and waterfall since the electricity was restored and the water is not clearing up at all. The super fine silt that washed down the hillside is practically dissolved in the water! I guess I am going to have to drain all this water out of the pond and start again with fresh water! A project for another day.
This wrought iron bench was pushed across the patio and tipped over by the powerful winds from our Saturday (Sept. 7th) storm. This is a very heavy piece. One person could not tip it back up - Joe and I had to do it together.
