Playa el grande

Out here on the plains we have low places that are often and/or usually dry. But, when we get big rains they fill up. Some used to call the buffalo wallers. This one was brim full after a recent three inch downpour: From Sunset 6-8-2010

Nice colorful pic, and interesting.

How deep is it and how long will it take to dry up...that is, if it doesn't rain again in the mean time.

Thanks Kt. Think of a large shallow bowl. But, this one is so full, it is probably 10 feet deep in the middle.

If we have our normal rainfall, it will keep a good bit of water in to next year when our rainy season (often kind of a misnomer) starts again. If not, it could be gone by September.

Thanks for the explanation.

We sure could have used some of that water down here the last two years...
