In the spring, I like to drive around the state and look at the flooding. It should be interesting this year, but it will be a while since in some areas the volunteers have not yet begun filling sandbags.
We had 1" of snow yesterday and the snow cover still decreases slightly. Some area could be up 23 feet over today's levels, but fortunately the terrain limits the flooded land area except for North Dakota where it could spread 20 miles before the Canadian ice jams go away.
The long days sure are happening quickly.
