Spring Floods

Every spring the rains come, and the snow melts, and the low places flood and the brooks and streams rise… It was amazing to see it this week as the waters rose by 18 inches literally overnight.

The other phenomenon I saw was the midday fog that comes over the snow on a warm spring day. Dad told me that the book he’s been reading on the history of maple syrup, the old-timers believed that the fog took the snow away. And in a way it does…

The Fog that takes the snow

Our little brook isn't so little in flood.
