I have mentioned numerous times in my blog about how all of the water that fell as heavy rains last summer and fall are still with us, as ground water. On our property, springs and seepages that I had never seen before still have standing water in them. This is also true at Koeneman Park.
The dark green, un-mowed area you can see in the photo used to be just normal lawn, but now it is boggy islands of clumpy grass sitting in water. I have never seen this area like this in the 35 years we have lived here. I am sure all of these newly created marshy areas are encouraging to our already over-populated mosquitoes.
