Bridge Down!

Well, all this rain and snow has caused a little havoc on our stream.

It swelled so much that it picked up an old bridge somewhere up stream of us, carried it downstream, and rammed the legs out from under our bridge!

See the two pieces there? If you click on the picture it should get big enough that you can see the remnant of the bridge that took ours out. Sad, isn't it?
But understandable considering where the water level normally is:

That's from last winter (no bridge!) But see that leaning tree on the far side just before the bend? See how that's about 3 feet outside the water's edge?

See it now?! That's from yesterday, and it's actually gone up overnight! What wacky winter weather we're having here- so much rain!
Well, at least we don't have to shovel rain!

Wowza! Haris must be sad - all that hard work gone...

Well, he managed to fish out the loose bits and has grand plans for re-assembly and extension, which is actually keeping him quite up-beat about it!

You could salvage the renegade bridge to use across the soft fern land on the far side. I will bring my hip waders in May.
