Walking Around Fosdic Lake Today Fishing & Looking At Litter
I figured enough water fell that the Tandy Hills was likely going to need a day or two of drying out.
I figured enough water fell that Village Creek was in high water mode with the park closed.
So, by default, today going to Oakland Lake Park to walk around Fosdic Lake was the location of my daily salubrious aerobicizing.
When a lot of rain falls Fosdic Lake quickly gets deeper, and starts falling over Fosdic Falls into Fosdic Creek on its way to the Trinity River, about a mile to the north.
In the picture at the top you are looking at the litter that did not make it over Fosdic Falls by the time the falls quit falling.
More rain is predicted for later today. Should enough rain fall the litter currently trapped in Fosdic Lake should be able to make it the rest of the way to the Trinity River.
I wonder if some means could be devised to trap the Fosdic Lake litter before it leaves the lake? I wonder how many other similar lakes contribute a similar volume of litter to the Trinity River?
It's very perplexing.
