Is the moor dying?

We had a fantastic summer in 2018. Sunshine, heat, no rain. For days, weeks and months. Everybody was happy, enjoying the weather. Everybody… except the moor. In the first image you can see one of my favorite spots in the Dänikhorster Moor. A canal running through the heart of the moor. In the next image, an image from two days ago, the same canal. It is shot from the opposite direction. And it has been raining for a few days already.

The lakes also lost substantial amounts of water. The third image shows one of our lakes. The fourth image shows you the same lake only tow days ago.

I hope that the late autumn rain and the rain of the winter and spring season will refill the water level back to the normal point.
The weather forecast for the next days: cloudy with sunshine… no rain.

Not really happy days,
Reinhold
