Big snag in the works

Rowlett Creek 6/15/2014

Big rains change the creek. Logs unjam and rejam. Debris flows downhill with the rainfall to the next new snag. If you've been in gridlock traffic, you've been a styrofoam cup or plastic water bottle entangled in the garden hose blocked by the pallet behind the fallen sycamore.

The latest rains created a triangle of trash dammed up behind fallen trees. A previous unsightly jam a bit downstream had washed away. But where did the garbage go? Just on downstream to the next big snag. And on downstream and on in ever smaller bits and chunks.
