How Wet is YoWindow

Post by countryroads » Thu Mar 10, 2011 1:50 am

Hi Friends,

The Ohio River and Mississippi River area has had a lot of snow and ice melt. This has been followed up with more heavy snow. Then that has been followed up with warm temperatures and rounds of all day rains. I thought I would share some pictures from Rascal's favorite winter time hiking area. I have 3 different days with 5 pictures each so hopefully this does not bore you.

Hi Friends,

This group is of a sail boat that was in the campgound and floated down the lake about a mile before someone was able to get to it and anchor it to a tree.

Hi Friends,

This is the last set of a Bridge that I need to drive across to get to Rascal's hiking area. There is no more clearance under the bridge for today's all day rain. Normally a Sail Boat can go under this bridge with plenty of clearance.

That is all the pictures until the floods are over.

Wow Marty,

Looks like Spring has a big task!
There's a lot to dry up!

Keep your (and Rascal's) feet dry!

Goodluck,
Fred
