That's what the slough in the midst of Arcola looked like last spring. There was talk of deepening it to create a permanent lake, with new housing developments along the shores.
Here's the same slough area, from the same vantage point (okay, the other side of the pavement) this spring.
I kept waiting for the lake to appear. I think at one point there was a little blue line curving away down the centre, where the small drainage ditch runs.
Gotta get those rain barrels set up.
