During a walk with the dog recently there was an interesting sight along our path. After a recent dry period the rain and snow returned, but the heaviest amount was north of us, upstream on the Great Miami River. A day later the roiling water had reached my area, while the local side streams remained perfectly clear of runoff.
The above picture was taken at the spot where Crain's Run meets the Great Miami. The water from the run was clear and pure coming off the hillside while the brown, muddy water of the Great Miami was flowing rapidly by and backing up a bit into Crain's Run. A bit farther to the right the water was perfectly clear to a depth of several feet.
