Meltdown......


Oh, not THAT kind of meltdown!
A climatic meltdown is happening here in Nova Scotia.
It was +9C today and heavy rain is expected for the next 24 hours.

Since the ground has been frozen for a couple of months,
where is all this water going to go?
That is the question.

Last year this time we were in the middle of a two month ice freeze.
Will this happen again this year?
We will have to sit tight and wait.

It was so nice to not have to bundle up yesterday
 when we were down at the beach.

Just another 'first world problem' I am contemplating.

This is water on top of an icy Lawrencetown Lake across from the beach.

  1. I hope it doesn't freeze, Jim! That makes for very dangerous conditions. Instead of rain, we got lots of snow yesterday. LOTS. About 45 centimeters! It hardly snowed up until now and then yesterday BAM...the mother load :)

    1. OH NO! Snow can get tiring....especially if you have to shovel it, eh Martha?

  2. Sunny and to go into the 50's F here today - way too warm for February at altitude. Ice is the worst - can't walk or drive on it! Take care.

    1. Today was like mid April in Nova Scotia, Barb. I guess we have no other choice than to embrace what we get.

  3. We have rain, real rain!!! Hope that water doesn't freeze and everything turns to ice. Sounds like there are huge snowfalls in so many places. Keep warm. OR cool, depending on whatever the day brings.

    1. Rain is good, Jean. Hopefully it cooled things off a bit for you.
      It is the norm around here to have mild winters and little snow.....with last year being the exception.
      Enjoy your summer days!

  6. We experienced this situation in western Maryland. We had four feet of snow, and then it rained. It really rained. Poured. Do you understand how hard it rained? It rained so hard that when I walked from my car to my place of work, my pants, shoes, and socks were all soaked. The wind blew so hard it turned the umbrella inside out, so it was useless. Where did all that water go? Some of it went into the water treatment plant and polluted the water. We had virtually no water for two weeks. We had to buy drinking water. I hope such a thing doesn't happen to you because I like a shower every now and then and toilets needs water for flushing. Best wishes.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I guess it rained there, Janie!! rain can be good but I guess a real pain as well!
      We had some flooding in parts of Nova Scotia but we were lucky not to have any.
      Best wishes to you too, Janie!

  7. I've said it again and again, What a beautiful place you live. But I do find it ironic that your heatwave, 9C, is our Arctic blast.

    1. It's all in the location location location, Mitchell.
      We could find beautiful things in almost any place I think. The world is full of great of them.
