Flood alert

Warm temperatures, heavy rain and snow melt have led to this.

This is the view I often take. See how high the water has come up the west bank, and how much mud has come down.

But on our side, where the bank is higher, there is still space.

In the pond there are now two inches of meltwater on top of a layer of ice so thick I can’t break through it.

    I find floods fascinating, the river in my town in Germany burst it’s banks last week, and it was only yesterday I could go see it in the daylight, very beautiful and strange. Hope you’re not in danger from the water!
