So silty! Bud buds are popping and so many kids in the local park!

Very murky, water level high from all the rain lately. Red-winged blackbirds, robins and white-breasted nuthatches in the area.

This was the highest chloride I've measured at this location. Measured 8.2 which seems off scale at >620. Water very silty but flowing.
Feels and smells very springy, red-winged blackbirds, mourning doves and robins are back.

All of the snow and most of the ice is now gone. Still kind of muddy. Nice to have the sun out today. Water is flowing nicely.

Site was ice covered last week so unable to measure. With all the rain and snow melt the ice is mostly off and water level higher than normal. Also vary silty.

Saw a killdeer and redwing blackbirds while I was there. Water quite high and moving pretty quickly.

So much salt residue still on the roads from the winter weather event the other day. Little snow accumulation here and there.

This is the first time I’ve been able to measure at the site since getting my permit because of ice.
Because we are expecting a wintry mix today, I’ve seen salt trucks in the area since last night
