Thaw Is Upon Us

Taughannock Falls at Taughannock State Park, Trumansburg, NY

When the ice begins to melt and the creeks start to rise, it can happen very suddenly here. The past few days have been quite warm, especially when compared with the bitter cold we had in February and much of March. Three days now have been above freezing! That means that water is flowing freely. In some places, that water has nowhere to go... which means creeks backing up, ditches are full of icy water and even basements are flooding. My plan is to head down to the Falls this weekend to see how the melting has effected this wall of ice. I have a strong feeling that most of the ice will be gone by the weekend.
