I just wanted to show you how fast our snow is disappearing.
The photos top and bottom left were taken 9 days ago on April 6 and the ones on the right were taken April 15. Pretty amazing eh?
This morning we got this. A cold front pushed in with about 4 cm. of snow and cold northwest winds. It looked like January!
The sun shone this afternoon and the snow is pretty well gone but it has turned very cold again. Oh well, I'm not going to fret over it as it won't last long.
We had a lot of rain in the province last night and that, along with all the snow we got this winter plus the mild temperatures the past 10 days has caused some very severe flooding in our province.
I wish I could show you the videos all over Facebook of the terrible flooding in some places. The town of Sussex has declared a state of emergency as the whole town flooded. Several roads are flooded or partly washed out. A century old covered bridge was taken out by the receding ice in a river and floated downstream. It's just sickening to see the damage and it is a nightmare for thousands of people. Quebec and Ontario are also having their share of severe flooding too.
After supper tonight there were about 25 deer up on the hill. You can see how much the snow has melted even with the fresh snow from this morning. The fire pit (that pile of rocks in a circle) was buried under over 2 feet of snow just on Monday. I tried to find it but couldn't and the snow was up to my knees in spots! We'll soon be able to have bon fires!
I can't wait to start yard clean up. There will be lots to do very soon.
Thank you for visiting and your lovely comments on my note cards. I appreciate it!
We have a very busy weekend coming up as we prepare for our Easter services but I will do a post for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It is such a special time in the Christian church as we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I look forward to it with great joy.
