RIVERS -- Ice breakup and a stew of winter weather conditions are raising havoc with area rivers, including the Grande Ronde River in southeastern Washington and, closer to home, Hangman Creek, which is flowing ice.
Cody Toner snapped the photo above from the Valley Chapel bridge this morning. He reported "ice dams all over the place," and said crews had worked Tuesday night to break up ice dams near Rockford.
Note the logs coming down with the ice. You don't have to be a beaver to recognize the dam-building and flooding potential as the weather changes from cold to snow to rain-on-snow in the next 24 hours.
