Water water…

Mead creek mouth in flood
Rotten gasket

This is the mouth of Mead Creek (foreground), where it flows into the Manistique River (flows right to left, background). We were pleased to note that the banks of the Manistique showed marks that indicated that the water has dropped on the order of 2.5 feet over the last few days. That’s a LOT of water that’s now in Lake Michigan!

Speaking of water, the plumbing parts are from a fix-it project the Guru kindly took on. Sounds like today is Part 1 of a 2-part undertaking (as in: back to the hardware store tomorrow). Note how degraded that gasket is—probably installed in the 60s? earlier?—not sure….
