Snow melt !!!
« on: April 14, 2011, 11:47:48 PM »
 Well it has to happen, we do normaly have some water rise into the fields and sometimes on the road. This past Tuesday was the picture taking day, it all has gone down now and we are able to get out  :) Very rarely does it come up this much in so short a time. We normaly are safe to leave the cars on this little hill , as no water usualy gets on the road here ....  ::) In the middle of the pic , that is not the road, it is the snow bank from this winter that is froze and is now an iceberg!  We take the cars there and travel with the bike .... Well as the last pic will show , that did not work out as planed this year  ::) 
 
   


   Having this for a name sure does not inspire confidence  :D 

   



  This is not a lake , there is a 25 acre field in there, just beyond the gate that is off to the left there :-\ 

   



  The cars are parked on the other side of that little hill in the back ground,  bike quit running  ::)  Had to get off and push it back to dry land, boss was on the bike and not really a happy camper and really not anticipating geting off into the icy water. We took the train track and went scouting after that. Man that water is cold ... Parts of me where already starting to hide , even thought they where not near the water, well not in the water  :o

     You might consider a boat rather than a bike for a few weeks!

The mighty Mississquoi en route to Lake Champlain?

For those unfamiliar with the river, it flows north into Quebec from Vermont, and then back into Vermont where it dumps into Lake Champlain. Used to be great fishing for browns, haven't fished it in about 10 years.

The snow melting snubbed up down here for a couple days. Barely 32 here, actually 27F. Suppose to rain again Sunday with high winds.

That looks interesting getting in and out of the homestead. Why don't 'cha build that road up on high ground? ;) Call it the High Road. :D ;)

I had to build fires today, feels like January. :D
Move'n on.

 SD, why would I want to do that ?  Ya need some excitement in life.  ;)

 Norm, it has to some extent but its been cold here since the flood, the north face of the mountains we sit on are not bare of snow yet. It's good to have this cold spell and let the water run off some. No damage was done other then limbs and a tree or two in the fields that will need be picked up, that and the fact that Rene did not get to go to work on tuesday no harm done  :) Those stoopid boots of mine sure take a while to dry out  :-\

Nah, all marcel needs is a big inner tube from a tractor and plastic snow shovel for a paddle.   :D
