Today on our adventure we went to check out the road that we heard was washed out a couple weeks ago because of an ice jam.
We took the road we knew had been closed, and it was a disaster!! First off, it was still closed, but we went anyway. Frost was coming out of the road. It was more mud than gravel. I was wincing, and hiding my eyes as we fishtailed closer and closer to the edge of the mighty St. Marys River.
And then we met the other end of the closed road.
So where was the ice jam?
Oh here it is! At the other end of the closed road. Ice chunks everywhere.
We took a walk on to the bridge to check out the ice chunks. The wind was very cold!
Then we drove over the bridge to check out the other side. The flood was so bad because of the ice jam that several power poles were wiped out and I heard they brought in a big generator to produce power for the houses nearby.
Someone lost a load of fresh pulp wood and it is washed all over the place.
See the grass way up in the branches?
I don’t think we drive anywhere here in Nova Scotia without seeing a manikin in someone’s yard!?!
