Wild Winter Weather
A bitterly cold stretch of winter had gripped the entire northeast for about two weeks, literally freezing up everything in its path. The outside world was locked up in a world of thick ice and snow, until a couple of days ago, when a sudden jolt of unseasonably warm(low 60's) weather changed all that. The sudden 70 degree surge in temperatures, ice jams releasing, and heavy rains lead to a dangerous flooding situation for many folks. This included my wife and I who live on the banks of the Kinderhook Creek. A short walk through our back field, provided me with a glimpse of the raging creek waters, roaring along.
