The water is still on the rise – about 4 feet in as many hours. Where it was just ice floating by bank to bank is now mixed with an even amount of water.
The water is rising about 6 inches an hour or more. Large pans of ice are packed in throughout the entire channel but moving steadily downstream.
The water has risen one foot in the last hour and a lot of ice is now passing Napaimute at 11:30 AM.
Looking across the way
As has been the case the past few nights the moon has been gorgeous!
Smokey enjoyed it!
So did Bullwinkle!
Up close and personal.
Only slush moving through now after a beautiful full moon last night. I just killed the first mosquito of the season in the Community Center five minutes ago! Saw several yesterday.
It’s just my best guess, but I’ve got a hunch it’s going to be a bad mosquito year.
The water level has risen maybe a few inches in the last 12 hours.

Much of the day very little ice was passing Napaimute, then about 8:00 some started going by, then more than I’ve seen the past few days is now passing at 10:00. However, the water level hasn’t been rising much if any.
It’s a nice peaceful morning here in Napaimute – no wind, temperature around 32 and very little ice is moving through.
