Yesterday was a good day. Before work, I mailed my letter of response to Sturgeon County mayor and all six council members.
After work, I met with a reporter from a local newspaper about the local wetland area that has been almost completely drained. We met at the site of the wetland. I took the above picture on August 29th, five days ago. Yesterday this side of the wetland was totally dry - the water had stopped flowing into this part of it altogether. September 1st was the last day of the 'permit' to divert water. Just in time, it would seem.
The reporter saw all of this with me, and asked a bunch of questions. He looked at the permit too, and I told him that water was being taken out of the wetland for weeks before the start date of the posted permit. There may or may not be a story in the paper about this wetland, but even if there isn't, the fact that a report came out to look at it and is going to investigate matters made it a very good day for water.
