The rivers and streams are coming back to life, as evidenced here in these photos of the Traprock River, taken by Judy Byykkonen. After the recent dumping of snow we received, everything is frosted in white once more, but with the warming temperatures, it's not lasting long. Judy's shots show the Traprock is churning again, yet the air is still chilly enough to form icicles along the melting banks. With the waterways beginning to thaw, it won't be long before the area falls will be gushing full speed with the runoff from the Spring melt. It's about time!

It's really heading for a thaw.

These photo's do look a tad frosty. Soon you will have Spring Fever to deal with, as your body adjusts to the climate change as you thaw from the inside out.

Inspiring photos! My motorcycle is also thawing out.

Very nice pictures. Just what you like to see after a long, cold winter.

Also don't forget to add the spring smelt runs and brown/steelie runs as well in the area rivers and streams......

Dr. Nat gave her forum lecture on climate change yesterday, speaking of spring melt. It was VERY informitive and a lot of good information came out of it.

I Like this picture of the melt, the melt in my yard is a little less picturesque. Showing my son the fine art of smashing slush frozen snowbanks tonight so it melts by the fourth of July (the incredibly large one is on the north side of the house and gets no sun).

I read that Ishpeming had 20 inches of snow two days ago. Wow. Does anyone have a feel if this winter has had more snow than average in the U.P.?
