The weather forcaster has been talking about spring flooding recently,
so I have decided to show some scenes from April of 1997.
This was also the year that Manitoba had the flood of the century.
All photos were done by Jake before the digital camera.
The scene above is looking west of our yard along the street. Another photo along the same street. No vehicles other than snowmobiles were able to get around for awhile. This storm started on April 4 and kept on for three days. The Jeep belongs to our son. He had gone out the day of the storm and could not get onto the yard. His Jeep stayed on the street for several days. This picture and the previuos one are looking south down our street. A plow had gone through by this time.
Somewhere under all that snow is our car.
Another picture of the Jeep,this time looking towards the north.
Here we are in a newer residential area.
A shot to show the hieght of the snow banks.
This was snow that had just drifted in this way.
We saw at some places where people walked onto the roof of the house
from on top of a snow bank.
The scenes all looked much the same.Snow and lots of it.
Streets were narrow paths cut through the snow.
Again just to show the size of the drifts.
