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.'
