Bettynh BS: SPRING! (72* d) RE: BS: SPRING! 06 Apr 14


The melt is in full swing with simultaneous flood and fire danger.

Rivers are full of meltwater from our northern NH mountains, though the cold nights seem to be slowing the melt enough to keep them mostly within their banks.

Mud season has come and gone within a couple days during the past week. We're on glacial till, so that's a very local report. I grew up on a bank of clay that probably could have been mined for potting - mud season lasted at least a month and I lost my rubber boots in the muck more than once. Here, I live on the remains of a sandy beach - it's dry as soon as the soil melts and I haven't bothered to buy rubber boots. My neighbor, unfortunately for him, lives on a cobble beach. Every shovelful from his yard is full of fist-sized rocks.

Dry sandy soil with leaves on the surface means we're vulnerable to brush fires until it greens up enough to suppress the possibility. This area was a sand barren before it was colonized. So I'm sorta hoping for rain while others along the river are ok if it holds off.
