In spite of just living through the wettest May on record and being in the middle of a pretty wet June, my creek is dry. I find this annoying, that someone upstream can just shut off our creek whenever he gets a mind to (and he seems to usually get a mind to about the beginning of June). But it really pisses me off this year, because, if he had closed his dam or whatever on the Saturday of the flood, who knows how differently Sunday would have gone?
It seems to me that, if you want to be able to stop a creek from flowing when it suits you, regardless of the wishes of people downstream, you might act neighborly to them about stopping it when they need it to stop.
And I’d like to kick the person who gave this person permission to stop my creek. I mean, you can’t just dam up a creek without a permit, right?
