the snow is going so fast





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.

Blessings,
Pam

  3. Pam the weather has been so severe this past winter and sporing--what will summer bring? I'm sorry to hear about all the flooding in many areas of Canada. I'm a little worried when all the snow melts her ein the Rockies it will run off and cause flooding here, too. In any event let us hope and pray for good weather to arrive, and stay! Wishing you and your family a very happy and blessed Easter!

  6. Beautiful photos you show. We don't have snow here, but it was only 25 degrees this morning with a cold East wind. Spring continues to elude us!

  7. So happy Spring is finally making its way to you. Sorry to hear of all the flooding. There is no doubt going to major flooding in the US too. Have a fantastic Easter Pamela.

  8. I'm glad to see that your snow is melting fast but sorry for the flooding. We had the same kind of day yesterday but it is still to cold to melt any of it. But it is supposed to warm up by the weekend.
    Happy Maundy Thursday.

  9. Oh how heartbreaking to lose a treasure like the covered bridge. We had some flooding locally, too, but I am not complaining. I have seen worse years. Sadly, a man did try to cross a flooded spot in the road near his home and was swept away. People just can not see or else they can not imagine the danger that can lurk in one's own familiar territory.

    Many Easter blessings to you and yours. Happy preparing!

  10. We saw that 100 year old covered bridge floating away down the river on the news last night. I thought of you and wondered how close you are to all the flooding. Such devastation.
    Surely that snow will disappear soon. Perhaps a little break in the melting isn't such a bad thing.
    Have a blessed Easter, Pamela.

  11. So sorry to hear of the flooding in your corner of the country...and the loss of a beautiful old covered bridge.
    May your grass soon be green and your flowers be blooming. Blessings to you and yours this Easter!

  12. This weather is beyond belief, really, eh? We have been water watching the last couple of days as Terry calls it..grin.. The bridges and rural roads are hard to imagine.. So much repair needs done let alone all the poor dear people whose properties and homes have been ruined... Praying for better weather ahead.. xo

  15. I am so glad to hear that the snow is finally melting for you, but not so glad to hear about the flooding. I hope that the waters will go down very soon and that any damage can be fixed quickly. We had very bad flooding here earlier in the year so I can sympathise with the damage and disruption that it causes. Anyhow, good to know that there are finally some signs of spring for you and that you might soon be able to get out in the garden and start enjoying your space again! Happy Easter. xx
