Today and a few days back

How the weather has changed last week snow and below freezing and today almost 5°C and rain.  We should not complain at all with the snow problems in Buffalo now.  All across the lake is water, the edges are opening up again.  This won't last long either.  This post is number 900.

Most of the lake has thin ice

 Today down by the dam taking some pictures water levels have gone a way down as the dam has six logs removed.  Most of the lake after last night has a skim of ice on it even the North Arm and down by the river.

Last night and this mornings snow and freezing rain

Here is a couple of pics from this morning after getting dumped on during the night and this AM.  Some areas are still getting more and we could get a lot more overnight.  Chance of more freezing rain too.  If this is the start it's going to be a long winter.

Paving the road thru Gowganda

This project started some time ago with new culverts, seepage tube along the road, grading and finally the new asphalt.  By the time it was ready to put the first layer down the weather was closing in and made for hit and miss work.  The second coat started and so did the snow and cold finally a couple of good days lights were bought it for extended paving hours.  In a couple of days the second coat was finished.  I took some video in the dark to show the equipment and the lighting they used when working in the dark even the lines were put down.  It is finally quiet in town again and with a lot less traffic.   The new asphalt road runs from the east of the big hill coming into town to down by the old maintenance buildings on the west side of town.  They widened the road so there is more walking room along the edge of the road great for those big trucks that crowd you all the time.
