The cost of too much rain

Our town has been absorbing a lot of rain this past week.  Too much, in fact.

We started seeing signs of it on our land.  Our biggest apple tree, which started bearing some promising fruit, suddenly started heeling over to one side.  When I felt the ground around its trunk, the earth was sodden, squishy, too soft to support a heavy tree.

So I propped it up with a piece of lumber, at least for the night:

This worries me. I'm very fond of that tree, and we have high hopes for being able to add apples to our produce.
