Temps in the 50’s and a heavy rain overnight have flushed the Deerfield clean of its frazil ice, as well as its shoreline shelf ice. All of it went over the dam at Shelburne Falls:

January Thaw

It’s looking a lot like a Spring thaw there; hope that wasn’t it!

As a side note, I had occasion to cross the Connecticut river this afternoon, and got a chance to wave “Buh-Bye” to said ice!  :)

Swear I could hear the falls from my house in Conway.

Peter, when I first moved into the area I lived up the hill behind McCusker’s. One Spring night the dam boards gave way around 2am, and from a sound sleep, I left claw marks in the ceiling. Loudest friggin’ BOOM I ever heard!
