I took these pics about a week ago and, since we were not getting any rain, decided to run well water into it the evenings. It brought it up considerably and it seems to be holding fine:
I took the kids down this evening with a flashlight to look at the water level and it has risen considerably with today's rain. I will take more pics tomorrow. Oh, and we saw a HUGE bullfrog--bigger than anything previously in the pond. Can't wait until this thing fills up.
