A Walk With a Bunny Chase and a Layman's Flood Prediction

Today will be overcast in the morning, then mostly cloudy. The high will be near -2F with a windchill as low as -24F. The winds from the NNW at 10 to 15 mph.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with fog overnight and a low of -9F with a windchill as low as -27F. Winds from the WNW at 5 to 15 mph.
Abbey and me took a walk along the snow mobile trail yesterday. It's now packed and frozen solid and almost like walking on the road. Abbey flushed another big jack rabbit from the windrow along the edge of the field but once again lost the race. There was a dead one along the trail, some mean person must have chased it down with a snow machine. That certainly is a cruel thing to do.
It's time to get the blower back out of the garage, we had another couple of inches of snow again last night. If this keeps up through the winter Lake Manitoba will again be flooded by extra input from the Portage Diversion which diverts water from the Assiniboine River north to Lake Manitoba. The natural course of the river is to flow east to join the Red River in Winnipeg then flow to Lake Winnipeg.
I'll have to write a blog on the portage Diversion where I started my career with the government in April of 1968.
