It has started, the west branch is running at 11,700 CFS. Not all that bad actually, a really heavy year would be 16-20,000.

The Andro peaked a few days ago and is on its way down. The rain tomorrow may change things, though. The Connecticut in Lancaster was at bankfull today. The snow is pretty much gone in the mountains, though I did find some going over Dixfield Notch on Tuesday en route to Montreal. 5 miles over the border from Colebrook the ground was dry enough that the Quebec farmers are prepping field to plant already. Ice was still pretty white on Umbagog on Tuesday.

Is it just me or is this the slowest passing of time during the entire year?

Time flies like an arrow,
Fruit flies like bananas, (reminds me of whirled peas...)
Nothing makes time fly like fishing.
Couple random thoughts...
