Roller Coaster

It seems the big news around this old farm has been the weather.  Last weekend we were digging out from a decent snowstorm.  Then warm weather moved in and melted much of the snow (wish I got more snow shoeing in!).   We then had an cold front move in from the arctic.  What a roller coaster ride.

We had an unexpected snow storm roll in yesterday, along with 6 inches of new snow.  This snow was welcome, but not long-lived.  The arctic cold has retreated, and a warm front moved in and brought snow melt and rain.

It was pouring!

The melt water and rain took over the frozen creek.  The ice started to break up.

The creek started to fill up . . .

The ice won't last long!  Ice dams and flash flood warning have been posted, but I don't expect our little creek to be a problem.

The heavy rain stopped for a while.  The creek was flowing fast and furious.

Like the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes!".
