cabins on the susquehanna

River is frozen solid...cold weather predicted all the way till March 5th...no melting of the snow pack, so it doesn't look like a nice smooth thaw. I gotta place in Wyoming County and I am getting worried...

You and many others. I wish you well.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: cabins on the susquehanna

While all it seems to have done for the last month is snow, and none of it has melted, there's really very limited moisture trapped in the snowpack. The temps have been so cold and most of the snow has come from the northwest. Other than the this crust it's a light powdery snow. I took a long walk at 1400-1700 foor elevation this morning. The snow depth averaged about a foot. Won't take much to melt it.
Every spring must be interesting along the river. Unless alot of additional moisture shows up before the melt, or lots of rain forces the melt, the current conditions aren't too bad.

I miss my hunting partner

Re: cabins on the susquehanna

The snow in Sullivan is powder but a warm heavy rain and a quick melt would cause run off too quickly. Then you have to worry about ice damming on the river when it breaks up.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: cabins on the susquehanna

dog...that is my main concern...a nice prologed thaw will get rid of the ice first..the ground is frozen solid any water will just run right off into streams...busted my butt 3 yrs ago rebuilding...i don't want to do it again.

Re: cabins on the susquehanna

I drove up along the west branch and I think as long as we continue this slow warm up everyone should be fine. Rain is in the forecast but as long as that stays minimal for awhile once again I don't think you would see anything out of the ordinary.

We take 6 then 267 and cross the Meshoppen creek on the way to camp. After the last hurricane,the fact that the water was over the bridge and up to the windows of the buildings next to the bridge is crazy hi from the stream bed. 30-foot or more? Iv' seen the damage on the Delaware and Schuylkill when they flood but nothing like the Susky. The whole ride up and back from camp along the river was an eye opener
I wish all of you the best of luck
