Blanche Brook running freely
What a difference a week can make. Last Thursday an excavator was at this location breaking up ice in the lower end of Blanche Brook at the bridge located at the intersection of West Street and Massachusetts Drive. Ice was then backed up from the mouth of the brook, where it flows into St. George’s Bay, up well past this bridge, but with mild weather and more rain, the ice is now flushed out and the brook is running freely.
