Beached

Evening Clouds

Friday the area had record rainfall. Some of the overflow went into Lake Michigan which meant beach closures throughout the area yesterday due to high E. coli levels. This didn't stop me from strolling along the lakefront. In fact, the closures meant that the beaches were quieter than usual. It looks too peaceful to be toxic, doesn't it?

If the rains are too heavy and these were torrential, it exceeds the tolerance of the sewer systems and run off gets released into Lake Michigan. Happy thought isn't it?
