Good Evening everyone..
Hope you all had a blessed Easter ...
What a week we have had here in New Brunswick ..
Last week we had some historical weather..
You can tell I am Canadian because weather seems to have it's part in each post that I write.. smile..
Anyway.. Last week we had floods everywhere..
We woke up and our son called and said that the town he lives in a half an hour from us was in a state of emergency..
Flood waters were practically covering his part of town..
Terry and I decided to take a wee trip out to our old farm to make sure it was all right..
It took us most of the day to get there as every brook and river had overflowed and a lot of the roads were closed..
We tried 3 different ways and finally arrived there..
What a relief..
It was fine even though it is in a hollow and the brook runs across the back and down the side of it..
Terry said he had not seen it so high before..
Who would believe that just 4 days ago he had to snowshoe over that huge bank to get into the house..
Now not a trace of snow remains..
Here are a few pics that I took along the way..
All these dear old farms surrounded by flood waters..
We did not get back home until supper time and couldn't believe some of the photos of other places here in the province..
The next day we went for another drive to see an old covered bridge that had floated 20 km. down the river to come to rest at a highway bridge..
More beautiful farms surrounded by water..
We saw ducks and geese everywhere..
Hundreds of them..
Do you notice the ice...
The flood waters had come down through the night but where it had been froze and looked like cellophane papers..
Beautiful, though, eh?
And this is what is left of the old covered bridge..
What a shame...
The province has a huge chore to mend all of the broken roads and bridges..
People are stranded and have to drive miles out of the way ...
So much damage occurred in just a few hours and caused so much damage and waste..
We did have a lovely Easter, though..
On Good Friday we all gathered at Shonda and Daves..
We were so thankful for what the day represented to each of us..
Jesus paid a great price for our souls and we are so thankful for Calvary..
Dinner was lovely as always..
Thank you, dear girl...
On Sunday morning we all celebrated the risen Christ..
Because He lives we can face tomorrow..
We had company for dinner and had
more ham and such.. smile..
So thankful to spend 3 days with our sweet family..
Thank you, Lord..
One dessert was delicious..
Fresh fruit and melted chocolate bunny..
A delicious Fondue...
The little guys received new bikes and enjoyed driving them..
See ya later...
Another few pages of precious memories..
The flood waters have receded and life is getting back to normal...
Looking forward to sunny days and garden plans..
How did your week go?
I loved having you drop by and look forward as always to your lovely comments..
Take care, dear hearts..
