I really like springtime!Â People get outside and start walking & running.Â Then they take their dogs out with them and I get to see a lot more of my four legged friends.Â Of course, you have to be careful in the spring, because there is a lot of stuff around that can get you in trouble.Â Like the half-melted snowhill that looks like a great place to climb on for a better view of the neighborhood, until you realize how soft the snow is and you sink past your knees and your belly rubs on the remaining snow — brrr!Â Then of course, there is the MUD!Â What would spring be without a bunch of muddy pawprints all through the house!!
Well, this spring, I’m going to try to stay out of trouble, but I still want to see what’s happening.Â And, this time of year, if you’re not watching basketball or hockey, the next best thing to watch is the rising river.Â Fortunately, I don’t have to get very close because the Grand Forks Herald set up a special camera to show me how the water is moving.Â They pointed it at the Sorlie Bridge and I’m able to look on the computer to see if the cars can still get between Grand Forks & East Grand Forks.
It’s easy to find.Â Just go to www.grandforksherald.com and click onÂ “Flood Cam 2011″ in the banner right below the section tabs.Â Once you get it going you’ll be able to watch the cars as they go across the bridge and keep an eye on the rising water.Â Let’s hope the water doesn’t rise too much though!
Enjoy Spring!Â And, I’ll get back to you soon.
