Having the Oriskany Creek as a fixture in my backyard is both wonderful and disquieting. Let's talk about the good parts. First, it's very peaceful and calming to listen to the flowing water. Second, it's a beautiful sight watching the sunset disappear behind towering trees and seeing the setting sun's reflection on the water. The bad part about having the Oriskany Creek in my backyard: flooding. Those "100-year floods" seem to be popping up every few years. This week's Photo of the Week depicts the creek in that peaceful and calming way.
