Bustin’ her banks

Remember what it feels like when you eat too much turkey and stuffing during Thanksgiving dinner? Your tummy does this magic expando bit that tests the seams of your pants.

Yeah, so that’s kinda how the river feels today. She’s gorged herself on water. Now she’s feeling overly full, like she’s gonna bust her banks at any moment. She gobbled down spring runoff from the mountain snowmelt. She snacked on light rain. I’m wondering if she has room for dessert, or will that send her over the edge?

And like Thanksgiving dinner, where it takes you mere moments to go from feeling normal to feeling like a gluttonous pig, circumstances can change quickly.

What a difference a few days can make.
