The ice is off the river and the water's rising. We're not in flood stage yet but it's coming, much of Minnesota is experiencing floods. As the rivers break up and the ice melts, ice dams form and the water backs up into towns and homes. Its a mess and the state is predicting a drawn out flood season.

My new fenders are doing their job!
I spotted a Ruckus out and about yesterday. (a reasonable speed and height from which to fall from) There's still a ton of ice on the city streets during the early parts of the day. I imagine that shadows and north slops will still see ice for a while.
Riding season is coming!
