Checking in with Turtle Creek

The thaw has gone slowly, which is the best possible way for a thaw to proceed when we had so much snow. Even so, Turtle Creek is rising steadily.
It's foggy this morning, so it's a bit hard to tell, but the water has come up a lot in the last five days. In case you don't remember, here's a comparison shot. The creek is up on the penninsula now, and once the fog lifts, we'll be able to see the water from our house (which we cannot, when the creek is at its usual level).

These may be weeds, but they're green, and we'll take all the green we can get.
And much of our current snow will be gone by the time we get more (predicted about mid-week).
The geese are gaggling, the robins have returned, and the air smells different. She may take her own sweet time arriving, but Spring is on the way.
