    Will put out a measuring stick after this round of rain. So far with each fill I've lost a couple of inches initially before settling but not as much as this last round. A measuring stick will tell me if it's steady per day or slowing down.

    That's correct. No material added for sealing. Pretty high clay content in all of the dirt

    Just checked on the pond this morning. Looks like I've lost about 6 inches of water from the high point. Never built a pond before so not sure if this is good or bad. Seems like a lot of surface area to loose but I'm assuming there's going to be some loss do to absorbtion into the ground...

    Here's from this morning. Gained about 6 more inches yesterday. Final water level should be clise to the top of the big upright stump. That's the big one that made my loader look tiny. 20210626_071304

    Reports of anywhere from 4 to 7" of rain around us yesterday. We gained about 4ft of water and have about 4-5ft to go. Raining hard here again now. 2021-06-25_09-14-02 2021-06-25_09-15-05 2021-06-25_09-14-13

    The rain has arrived tonight. Flash warnings and heavy downpours. Should know in the morning if the pond holds promise. I'll be disappointed if we don't gain several feet from this one. 2021-06-24_09-51-38

    No haven't planted anything. Banks and walk path around the pond is almost solid clay so nothing grows well on it. I have a lot of top soil piled up that I plan to spread on the walk path around the pond this fall before I seed. Work got too bust to get it done this spring so that's still on...

    Still seem to be missing all of the heavy rain. We've had plenty of light rain events but no runoff at all. So far for the year the two largest rain events in a 24 hr period here have been 3/4". Not a single storm has git an inch of rain. A few days ago we got 1/4" and a friend of mine 20...

    Ended up with about 1/2". Gained a little over a foot I think. I did see a pair of ducks fly off the pond this morning. First time I've seen ducks around.

    Agreed. I could probably start digging a swimming pool this week and get the pond filled. Lol.

    Starting to think the rains are never coming here. Everything continues to split north and south of us. Originally calling for up to 2" tonight and 100% chains of storms. Now it's down to 60% and looks like it is going to track just south of us again. On another note I started cutting in...

    Unfortunately no. Still waiting on the 1st good rain of the year. Yesterday's rain event only brought us 0.11 according to the closest weather station.
