It was a little on the steamy side when I departed for my walk this morning – yep, just hot and humid like a Summer day. I was wearing a cap-sleeved cotton shirt and still felt clammy. There were no critter treats to take along since I finished them up the other day, so I was streamlined and ready to roll nice and early. I got down to Council Point Park and had started on the first loop, when the mounds of white stuff floating on the Ecorse Creek immediately caught my eye. In the past, I described it as looking like dishwater, all sudsy and brimming over the top of the Creek. Today, I looked a little closer, (or perhaps my glasses were cleaner), and noticed it was not a film at all, but mounds of white fluff from the dandelions and cottonwood trees that had accumulated and settled atop the water as you see in the picture above. Unbelievable! It just sort of sat there since it was a calm morning and there was no wind. The fluff and stuff was bunched together in various places along the Creek, and, in other spots with no accumulated fuzzies, the water was just brown and murky. I walked only one lap today, so I was slackin’ off I guess, or perhaps the muggies got to me. You can bet the first item I checked when I got home was my A/C unit to ensure there was no white fluff clogging up the grill that needed hosing off. Surprisingly, there was none, but maybe the recent rain was slanting sideways and took it all off. This got me wondering where all that fuzz and fluff ends up eventually? No wonder that fish was jumping out of the water so quickly last week. He was probably getting asphyxiated between the fuzzies and the brown water and wanted to get out of there pronto … I can’t say that I blame him.
