Souris Floods – Receding!
I don’t know if it’s temporary or what, but the water has receded south of Oxbow. A thick layer of river silt now covers the ground. It reminds me of the Skeena river near Kitimat, BC. As the tide would go out it would often leave a silty layer behind on the river banks, almost like a soft clay. Hopefully this is a sign of brighter days ahead. Also, where the road meets the bridge has been filled in and is passable now too, which is a great relief for anyone living south of Oxbow for sure! 8)
