The Rise and Fall of the Red

Today is my Mother’s birthday.  Last year we celebrated her 90th birthday, so I guess this one must be 91!  🙂  Happy Birthday Mom! The Red River has had it’s ups and downs this year.  We had the spring rise as the snow melted and headed north to the lakes.  Then it dropped as that… Continue reading The Rise and Fall of the Red

Red River Rising?

Normally the Red River rises in the spring and then spends the whole summer dropping.  This year it rose in the spring a bit.  Not as much as expected after all that snow – but it was high enough that the big tree across the river had water all around it. The river started it’s… Continue reading Red River Rising?

Love the Heat

Wow 2 hot days in a row – after about 300 days of freezing temperatures.  We went from having the heat on in the house about a week ago to having the air conditioner on.  Usually in the spring we can go for a month or more without heat or air conditioning – but this… Continue reading Love the Heat

Canada Geese and The Red River

Today, we have a couple of pictures of Canada Geese along the Red River.  We also have the big tree across the Red River to show that the river has already dropped in levels and will now continue to drop throughout the summer. The big tree across the river is so useful to use while… Continue reading Canada Geese and The Red River


It has now been raining and then snowing for the last 2 days.  😦  The ground is white again – but it obviously (I hope) will be gone very quickly. The rain did help the snow on its way – and there are still patches of the old snow, now covered with the new snow,… Continue reading Snow

The River, The Yard and The Dog

Now that the ice on the Red River has broken up, it is just a matter of watching the levels rise.  Of course, there are still chunks of ice, but otherwise – its just water.  So, I took a couple of yard pictures today to show you that I still have snow in the yard,… Continue reading The River, The Yard and The Dog

Looks Like a New River

Just like that and the ice is gone.  Well – most of the ice is gone.  It was a little chilly when Chester and I walked over to the Red River, but we headed there for pictures this morning as usual.  Tomorrow there might be ice again.  🙂 The cloudy sky did not stop the… Continue reading Looks Like a New River

As The Red River Rises

At this rate, it won’t be long until the Red River is ice free, but there should be a few more days of watching the changes take place before that happens. These pictures are what we have now after a few beautiful warm (well warm for us) and sunny days.  Today it is supposed to… Continue reading As The Red River Rises

More on the Red River

I enjoy watching the Red River change daily and I hope you are enjoying it (without feeling the cold) also.  🙂  This morning there was a pair of Mallard Ducks to take pictures of along with the shifting ice.  Chester was enjoying watching the ducks. We also have the sidewalk in my back yard that… Continue reading More on the Red River

Happy Easter

Hope everyone has a happy Easter. Today I have more Red River pictures from our walk this morning.  As predicted yesterday, there is no sign of the red post in the water today. I also have 3 stories from work yesterday.  None of them were happy and one was tragic. The red post is directly… Continue reading Happy Easter
