It came suddenly. The temperature has rise till +8 by Celsius. All huge mountains of snow have melted in a couple of days. It seems that spring got desperate while waiting for its chance. Our river “exploded” today. After being imprisoned in a thick layer of ice for 4 month it suddenly freed it self. I have never seen anything like this… the water level has rise 6 meters. Enormous amount of ice has covered the banks. All small trees and bushes which were growing there for years were pulled out with roots or covered by ice and water. I never knew the beavers are living around, until the ice has destroyed their home and poor animals had to run for their lives…

This is so beautiful and scary at the same time. Moments like those make us to remember that we should treat nature with a great respect.
