We Are In a Jam

In an ice jam that is.

Good evening sweet fellow blogging buddies.



We have had an ice jam since the first of the year.
This is not normal for us along the river here.
The ice does not jam like this until March.
Now with all of the snow, polar freezing and rain we are expecting tonight,
we might be in a bigger jam.


With the rain and warmer temps,
where is all of the water going to go?
Please say a wee prayer for us,
as we are afraid there might be some flooding this weekend.

On another note, I want to give a great big
SHOUT OUT
to both our American and Canadian Coast Guard.
These men and women risk their lives to rescue
folks from the waters of both of our countries.
Where others won't go, they head straight for it.
Without them our coastal waterways this time of year 
would not be navigable.

This is our ice jam.

So this big fella can get through our big river.

And one more post script.
Peepers was a little miffed that I did not include him 
in my Sunday Afternoon view.
He sleeps next to my crock lamp.
So sorry Peeps..do you forgive me now?


Weekend Blessings To All!
Janice

  5. Love your sweet kitty! Hoping no flooding comes your way. The icebreaker Mackinaw is docked here. The crews spend many weeks away from their families on the ship - much respect for them! Take care ~*~Lisa

  6. Saying a lil' prayer for you all... Sure has been strange weather all around. A few days ago we had temps of -30+ and windchills of -55+....Today we had freezing rain believe it or not.... But, it's back to snow now. Guess, between the two, I'll take the snow. Hope things have been well your way....looks like you're keeping busy. And to answer your question, I guess I'm more a wool addict than a fabric addict....and I get my wool from the wool lady down the lane....My neighbor, Cathy, from Red Barn Rugs..... Stay safe....and warm... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Sweet kitteh!!)
