I thought I’d post a couple of pictures of the creek that flooded yesterday. We had a couple of days of temperatures around 8-9 degrees C and with the higher temperatures and rain it was inevitable that the creek flooded.
If you scroll down a couple of posts you can see a picture out the back door that shows the creek as it normally looks. We’ve had a tremendous amount of snowfall this winter so in a way I’m glad that we had a partial melt-off otherwise the flooding would have been even worse in the spring and with much more rain besides.
Creek February 12th, 2009 in the morning very overcast and raining, high winds. This shot was taken about an hour before the creek was at the height of the flooding. Some ice floes over on the right blocking the creek bed.
Later in the afternoon more chucks of ice.
Empty sunflower seed hulls from the birdfeeder on my deck, what a mess…
Creek February 13th, 2009. The water has receded somewhat. Nice sunny day and I’m near the edge of the bank. Some big ice floes there and the water current isn’t flowing as fast, wonder if it’ll freeze up and kids will go skating?
Another shot down the bend.
More ice floes. The trees are willows down there.
