My friend Redneck swimming in a sea of cat food.
He is happiest when there is a lot of cat food floating in the water.
Redneck is a Red-eared Slider (Trachemys scripta elegans).
Below: Our currently mostly dry lake.
While the rains from Tropical Storm Andrea will likely
help the years-long drought it will take more than
one tropical storm to refill this lake.
In 2003 the water was lapping at our back door,
now it is about 1 mile distant and 12 vertical feet lower than 'normal.'
