Spring Melt Begins

The picture below is taken from ‘the top’ of the barn yard. You can just see the top of a fence post in the foreground. And just the corner of the picnic table is visible, emerging from the bottom of a mountain of snow.

It is interesting to be able to walk over the barn yard! There is just so much snow. How long will this melt take? What are the repercussions of so much snow? And when will fields be dry enough for the farmers to get farming? Conservation Authorities tell the Globe and Mail that there is 5 inches of water stored on average in the snow. Let’s just hope that it does not melt too quickly, even though most of us are really looking forward to pulling out our lawnmowers and getting gardening again.
