We just had two days of heavy rain and it has made up for the lack of snow this winter. For the first time in the 20 years I have lived at Sand Bay, the two-track behind my house has flooded from the Sand Bay road becoming an aqua-duct and channeling a stream of water all the way down from the big marsh up in the hardwoods on the other side of the county road. It is course gravel up there and a lot of the water is gushing up out of the ground and coming down the road to Alber's and beyond to my place and even to Mitchell's.

Those coming this weekend can expect the swamps to be topped off with spring rain.

I would imagine the inland lakes are maxed out? I heard Rocky Road was renamed Rocky River. White water rafting, anyone?
