So how much did it rain this week?

Take a look at these before and after photos Martin deGrazia took of Ronald Bog.

Ronald Bog is located in the Meridian Park Neighborhood, at Meridian Ave N and N 175th. The bronze ponies stand in front of the Bog, which is home to beavers, turtles, and ottters.

Ronald Bog normally holds a high volume of water and has been known to flood the intersection during heavy rainfall.  A rain gauge in the neighborhood showed 2 3/4" of rain.

The new retention ponds at Cromwell Park (by the courthouse) were designed to take some of the pressure off Ronald Bog by capturing the excess water further upstream.
