Spring On The Prairies
Wow,Sask. has too much water. I shot this video April 12, the warmest day yet, near 50 degrees. Snow was melting faster than it could flow through culverts and roads were being washed over. Currently I am flooded on all 4 directions (roads) although two of them are passable by driving through the water. A cold night has slowed down the melt and give the buildup a chance to drain some. Still lots of snow to go so its not over yet. Most rivers and lakes have not hit crest levels yet. There is not water storage left on our fields as all the sloughs are full and running over, eventually draining into the Qu'appelle basin. Spring on the prairies.
