gaspe upd

York is looking GOOD for June and on the Matapedia the Routierville bridge is still entact and no longer in danger. The Ultramar in town of Matapedia is no longer in da water ! . Still "some "danger of flooding in lower Matapedia though!
Howie, the logs from your cabin can be picked up in the town of Matane at the dam(just kidding ) !

There must be huge amounts of snow on the ground and in the hills still to melt, no?

Gaspe doesn't look to be getting the incredibly warm weather that we are receiving in Ontario and western Quebec, so I imagine that the melt is going pretty sedately right now.

They had a pretty tough winter in St Rene this year with snow levels at all time highs. The last big storm around March 23 dumped over three feet of snow on top of the 3 - 4 feet of existing packed snow. I had 7 feet of snow on the roof on March 24, which had to be removed or else the logs would be down by the dam.

Its been over freezing (not very warm) with periods of sun and rain recently, so the run off is slow but consistent as it stands right now. All we can do is hope that no huge rain and hot weather hits the area now. The rivers have seen mother nature at her worst in the past 8 months. Hopefully we are in for a break.

Still lots of snow here in Cascapedia. I have been home for a week now and have seen the snow melt about 2 feet already. There is about 3-6 feet of snow in the forests and about 2 feet around town.

When I got back there was a hell of a lot more than this but the snow seems to be seeping very well into the ground. It would appear that the ground is not frozen deep this year which should mean that we will have a good consistent melt.

It sucks when the ground is frozen deep as it causes floods. The soil cannot absorb the melting snow fast enough. This year however, it looks like things will melt well, despite the amazing amount of snow we got this year.

SO GLAD I MISSED IT!!! at least most of it...

Howie, next year do NOT take anymore chances with your roof! Get someone to shovel it off when there is only 2 feet of snow. When I came home the snow was up to the base of the roof at my cabin! Holy Barbless Hooks Fishman!

Historically my roof can take 2-3 feet of snow, as the center beam is a huge spruce. My caretaker shovels it when ever it gets over that like after that recent March storm which dumped over 3 feet in one shot in St Rene.

Will be going as soon as the road is passable. Right now, its not. Perhaps by early May I can get through with no problem....
