With several of the past springs being hot flooding years, we geared up our flood cam to chronicle the rise of the Mississippi River outside the windows of SMM. But this spring's gradual melting hasn't created much in flooding conditions. It turns out, however, we now have interesting time lapse captures of the "ebb and melt" of our late snows these past three weeks. You can check it out here. That is, I guess, if you really want to look at more snow!!!

The best effect is the overnight storm last week. The median on Sheppard Rd is your basic green/brown of early spring, it fades to black and then WAM! it's covered with snow again.

Thanks for the link.
