NZ0314 : Culvert filling up in the thaw

Culvert filling up in the thaw
Culvert filling up in the thaw
After heavy overnight rain, the snow which followed this morning is thawing once more. Ditches and culverts all over the village are filling up and draining towards the NE. The soil is saturated everywhere and since Boldron is on a boulder clay based soil, it's getting pretty muddy underfoot. This little channel doesn't normally carry a noticeable stream at all. There is still plenty of snow left to melt, but it is all getting pretty slushy.
