SkyWatch Friday - Cartier, Manitoba, Canada - Last of the Water

On April 26, 2014, the Assiniboine River had an ice jam which caused the water, about 4-5 feet,  to back up into our backyard.  That's about 1.5 feet below the line (which was caused by the 2011 flood) you can see on the trees.  There were no damages and the most of the water receded within 4 hours. The rest, about 10%, was landlocked and was slowly absorbed by the earth. As of May 1, 2014, this is all that's left.  Ahhh...the joys of living near the river.
