This is called the Powerline Trail. It's usually completely dry. There is no water source really close by. As you can see it's completely flooded!
Son came by yesterday with his new kitten. So cute! He named it Basil. He is really, really tiny.
My cat was not very impressed by him. In fact he was quite put out. He's so spoiled! He ended up going in the kitchen and sitting on his mat - the same place he escapes to when Shasta visits.
