Flood and trip preparations

These are the only babies we have seen this spring. They do addle the eggs around here when a nest is found.

The lake continues to rise.  This was taken yesterday and many of those rocks are already covered. This is in front of your place Karen!

So the third step shown in my last post is now well covered and rising up ( 6 – 10 inches in between steps ).  Only the 4th and 5th left to go and and then another 5 inches to be level with the patio and lawn.

Taken last evening.

Taken this morning.

Colin decided that he was not happy with leaving certain plastic containers under the house.  So he went through them all and brought the most important ones into the house.

Lots of sunshine out there today and more to come.  We have yet to see the worst of the snow melt.  I read today that they are calling it a once in 200 year event.  Last year they called it a once in 100 year event.  Don’t even want to think about next year.

Looks like we are living in a hoarders house 🙂

We did get some packing done which was important.  We are checking our luggage right through to our final destination.  We have four different flights and just did not want to cart it with us and it is costing us nothing to check it so why not.  So I am traveling with a small purse and personal item and Colin is traveling with a small camera bag and a personal item.

It was a full day but stress free as we got done what needed to be done.  Time now for an earlier dinner than normal for us as we want to get to bed a bit earlier.  Any little bit that we can do to help alleviate jet lag is a bonus.

    Hi !
    It’s been said that a strong ginger tea ( home made tea) helps to alleviate jet lag & gives you more energy. We are all different, but it works for me. Have a wonderful trip. My regards, Lucy.

      We will be ready at 5:45AM when our rode picks us up. As to our home, Mother Nature is in charge. We have done the best we can.

  3. I’m with you on checking luggage for a long series of flights unless it’s a short trip or a nonstop. I had one small bag, one direct flight to Quito so it was a good thing to carry on.
