It has been warm while we have been gone.
Not record breaking, but definitely snow melting temperatures.
Unfortunately the ice isn't melting as quickly as the snow,
causing a bit of an high-water situation,
which has created an island along the river.
The driveway is underwater as the water runs down to the pond from the river overflow
on the west side.
Small sections of the road and drive have been washed away by the powerful rush.
Even Dexter Dog doesn't want to walk in the frigid ice water.
This side of the house is a little calmer than the river-side.
The water is sounding pretty angry over there
as it tries to push the ice downriver.
It isn't nearly as bad as the flood of 2002, but still plenty of water to
give the newly returned Nursing daughter some
big puddles to splash though.....
