Assiniboine River Absorbing Snow Melt

The Assiniboine River in Winnipeg is high, 8 feet above normal levels, therefore the walkways are submerged big-time. A slow melt and no major rains and the walkways could be ready in early May.

Ugly bubbly soup. All the scum from the street runs into the river at this time of year.

Assiniboine Avenue which runs along the river has two new buildings. A 25 story, and a 22 story, top right, still under construction.
