Spring Thaw 2018

Just a few pictures of the record-breaking flood  here in Saint John, New Brunswick. The previous record was from 1973 … or so they say. Our little city has really made it to the national news more than ever before.

It’s the mighty Saint John River that’s brimming over . There’s no easy way for the water to get out, as it has to pass through the ‘bottleneck’ called Reversing Rapids. The tides don’t help either.

We are not affected by this in any way. I took these pictures over three days, and it hasn’t peaked yet. There are oodles of drone videos out there, this was just on my way to the local grocery store 🙂.

  1. Wow. That looks nasty. Though the few pictures with the sun shining make the flooding look almost cheerful. Surely not too cheerful for those who were affected. This spring is totally wrong. We had a long winter here and then we suddenly jumped right into summer temperatures. No real spring in between.
