Water, Water Every Where!

Well, quite a bit has happened since the last time I posted to complain about the snow.
For one thing, I took three of my students to a show. It was exciting... however that's not my story to tell, so let's just say that it ended with three tired horses and three happy kids. Which makes it a good show, right? 
Because two of the three had new-to-them horses, I opted out of this show, so no pony came along. 
 I did, however, was my truck.
 Then it rained (of course) on the way to the show.
But when we got to WI, it was warm, sunny and spring-like. Nearly a whole different world from the UP that we left behind. My prayers must have been answered, though, because we've had four nice days in a row up here now and the snow is melting off at a very high rate. So high that we are now experiencing flooding.
Good thing that bridge is 60' wide

To the South....

My creek, north of my bridge

Another show to try to capture the sheer volume of water

My former log bridge is under water....

Everything bewteen the road and the snow: rushing water
Of course, with the spring temps, all of my ponies were just fantastic today. Woohoo. 
Two more days until they come home....
