Sometimes, Mother Nature, loses her mind. Last year, in our area was one such season. Mother Nature sent us lots of snow and when it melted, we flooded. Just north of our place, the river backed up and the water headed our way. We were flooded on the north corner of our acreage. We had some scotch pines that were almost ten feet tall and they were waterlogged. Then the Spring winds came, as they always do in Saskatchewan and blew the trees over. Some of our trees were uprooted. Some died because the roots were exposed. Others just had a permanent lean to them. Not much a person can do but start again and replace the ones that didn't make it.
