Effects of Flooding at Ellington – Coming Soon

May 3rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

It’s around noon on Monday, May 3, 2010 as I write this, and am just about to undertake my first Nashville nature hike after the all-time record floods that ravaged a wide area over the weekend, which just ended yesterday.

I look forward to surveying and photographing the creeks and other low-lying areas at Ellington Agricultural Center. I would imagine the beaver dam has been washed away, and that the mallard duck nest with seven eggs photographed late last week in the Ellington marshes has probably been destroyed, though I certainly hope not.

More soon!

    I tried to check out Radnor Lake both Monday and Tuesday to see what the effects were from the flood and hopefully get a glimpse of how high the lake had gotten but it was blocked off by the Rangers 🙁

    I thought I would be slick and go to the Otter Creek entrance but not only was that entrance blocked but there was a tree down in the road as well. They had signs clearly marked “no visitors beyond this point” so I didn’t want to push it. Too bad, I really wanted to document and photograph the aftermath.
