All this had already melted off last week in the 60+ degree weather we had for several days, so we're down to bare ground and there's flooding all around us from all the snow melt. Yesterday there was a forecast for more snow (it only got up in the 30's) but fortunately for us it's all going south of us about 60 miles. But they're really getting whalloped--another 8 inches of snow for them!! What a spring!!

And I sure wish I could somehow send it all down to you, Gil. We sure don't need anymore---it'll all just melt and run off, as the ground is frozen solid for many inches down, so it's wasted here. It just turns into flood water for those downstream from us.

Thanks for your note, Charlotte--yes, I think it's going to be bad for everyone this spring that gets annual run-off from snow melt. Many places are already filling sandbags in preparation for extra high water. All this snow does us little good up here because it melts and runs off the frozen ground. It isn't till the ground can absorb it that it sinks down into our underground aquifiers.

I was just thinking about how high the Mississippi in Baton Rouge will be this year. We are already saturated in this area and have gotten around 35 inches of our annual 64.

Boy that's for sure, Julie! When all this melts it drains into Lake Superior or the Mississippi basin and on down south. I feel so bad for everyone who's going to be flooded out because of all our snow. We've received over 40 inches already just in April alone, setting a record---not one we really want.

Somehow I get the feeling we will recieve your flurries and showers here in Illinois and Iowa on the Mississippi soon!!! If you could just keep it up there awhile till the flooding subsides here, we would greatly appreciate it!!! : ) Sorry you guys got socked with snow!! Too darn late in the year for that nonsense!!!!

Oh my goodness, June---I feel so bad for you!! What a mess, especially when it all melts and fill the rivers and fields. Spring can sure decide to show up any day now and stick around. :-)

We missed that one but got hammered on Monday, we got a foot, Bismarck 23 inches though they had not had nearly as much all winter long. We have snow and sleet in the forecast again. I am sick of snow in mid April that's for sure.

Guess it might be a new term for a whole bunch of snow in April ! " Showers" might sound better and is open to guesses !

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs---too hot for me. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
