Rain, Irrigation, Creatures of Salida

I had a day or two of little work outside because of rain, cold, and such.  Call me a wimp.  I did want to share a video taken at my work site.  The first is one of rafters going by in the cold, rain, and such and having a good time while I waited for the rain/wind to stop.   The river was running swiftly but not too deep.  Several rafts went by with school age children and an adult or two.

The second video is of an irrigation system going in a field for what looks like oats.  Out of view were several deer heading to the water for a drink.  The deer are pretty domesticated as they are seen every late afternoon and evening walking the Salida streets, sidewalks and yards of a fairly urban small town.  Below is a still image of the deer behind our workspace on Hwy. 50.
