Frozen Tundra & thawing river

After having rain from Thurs night through most of Friday we have had flood warnings for the entire area.  This morning they said the ice jam on the river had broken so I thought it would be a great idea to go walk along the river this afternoon to check it out.  

Wrong!!!

We tried 4 different ways to get to where I wanted to go & each time found the road closed due to flooding.  We finally ended up here & the bike path looked like this!

We finally "snuck" down the access road to one of the pump stations.


End of the line....we weren't getting any further!
Check out the crazy canadian geese watching the ice flow by!


Look at the frozen tundra....we still have a ways to go before we see green again!

  1. Maybe you should do what they do at golf courses and just spray paint everything green!
    You could just convince yourself it is grass and not painted green snow!
    Lovely photos.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
