water and ice crest Hinkley Dam

Water and ice crest Hinckley Dam .

It was about 05:15am on Monday march 30Th when water began to spill over the spillway at Hinckley Dam. I arrived on site of the dam about 10:25am with about 10 inches of water going over the spillway. I have never witnessed ice plummeting over the dam but I did get to witness that soon after my arrival. The sequence of pictures are #1 is of upper elevation of dam from road showing water and ice cascading over dam. #2 shows ice hanging on but inching overtop of spillway.#3 has more ice crashing down the face of dam. The noise of the water and crashing ice was very Erie. I have three more pictures which I will post tomorrow. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure. thank you and good evening.

Thanks for the pictures. I spent the majority of my life in the Hinkley area and even though I have enjoyed the past two years living in North Carolina, seeing these pictures brings back good memories of my past.
