About Me

My photo
BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

ICE JAM on the Nachako River

I didn't get many photos of our ice jam on the river on Sunday ( well I did but had the camera on the wrong setting ! DUH ) ...but these are the ones I did get . This is looking across the river to the businesses on the other side of it . That field of snow is the ice buildup on the river that keeps building up more and mopre because it has nowhere else to go .
Not great photos as they were taken through the truck windshield !
The old Cameron Street Bridge with the ice building up under it .
Crossing the John Hart Bridge from North to south ...that is the frozen river stretching from bank to bank !
Apparently there may be some ice movement in the next day or so as they are trying to cut the ice with a machine ( large boat I do believe ) and forcing it towards the Fraser River which the Nechako joins with ... I have no idea how they expect this to work but they say it should help ...............
