Aah.....Spring Ice -
Spring Ice - On The Move - but, we just had Winter??
A few short weeks back we had ice storms, freezing rain,
tons of snow and more on top of that, along with -25 to -31 temps.
Recently we have had a severe break in the weather,
so warm in fact that lunch was served sitting out on the deck.
The ice on the river is breaking up and there is more coming down river.
This photo was taken just about at high tide - there is lots more ice to come yet, and much of it will collect at the bridge. Some smaller pieces will get through and run on down river towards the wharf and then out into St Andrews Bay and the Bay of Fundy. As the ice thaws more, ice chunks that are too big to get through the bridge will continue to collect around and under the bridge and one day in late Feb or March it'll all let go and rush through in one big bang. I have yet to be there when it happens; however, have heard the noise it makes. We haven't had our highest tide of the year yet, anytime through mid-Jan till mid Feb.....so, I'm thinking it may run over the wharf this year.
This last photo is to the right of the bridge. The river runs down through the gap opening in the upper left corner. We have very swift currents in the St. Croix River and it can be very dangerous - when you walk by you can hear and watch the ice chunks moving and gathering. Perhaps I'll just be walking by when that happens this year. Sure is a site to see and hear, so I'm told.
