A little creek behind where I live.

If you look up from the last shot, the climb. At least 60 to 75 degree incline. x/

I'm kinda wondering how deep this little creek will get. Normally, I can walk across this without getting wet.

Nice, Steve.

In Hamburg at 53 degrees North (!), we are definitely a bit more ahead with springtime. Plenty of crocus and buds everywhere...No leaves yet, of course. The reason for our comparatively mild climate is the proximity of the warm Gulf stream. Practically no snow throughout this winter again.

We had a brutal winter temperature wise. :shock: The snowfall was about normal. We were lucky there. Caught the tail end of most of the storms.
Could have been like Boston. Those poor people.
Most of that first image was ice that got stuck. There used to be a dam there that washed out in the 1960's. Now there is an ice dam.

Indeed the climate is strange, John. We are at the same latitude, but here the northwind from the pole doesn't cause big chill; just the North-East wind, related to the so-called "Siberian vortex" is able to penetrate causing sometime rarest snow (10-20 cm!) on the shoreline (west) which is dissolved soon after sunrise. And none the less the distance is far more longer than the yours involved.

P.S.
In some areas at the centre of the peninsula there can be even 2 meters of snow, though.

the great lakes do cause the forecasts to be ????????

when they are able to predict what happens HERE and what 1/2 of the worlds "lake" water dose the the weather forecast
forecasting will be "there"


there was a BIG reason that no native Indians WINTERED in the buffalo area
and that the area was "free" ^^ ^^ :p to settle

living there in the winter is a BIG MISTAKE

I forgot about this. I sawed a piece off this thing last summer. A natural bridge.
The snow was a little too deep to get to this place last week. Now the snow is almost gone.

This was the reason for the ice dam.

It took an hour to go a mile when I left this place. The Appalachian trail. Any speed faster than crawling on hands and knees led to a uncontrollable slide. I'm talking about driving a truck here. Down a mountain road that gets no winter maintenance. Gravity was not my friend on that day. Winter just wont let go.
Another world. South of the Wyoming Valley.
