We had a lot of snow the week before the thaw, and then a very sudden spike in temperatures on June 9 and 10.  This caused more dramatic runoff than usual, and led to some flooding and some roads being washed out.

At least this dog has a boat!

Here's the river carving a channel in the snow:

I didn't notice it when I took this photo, but there is a bunch of erosion at the base of the steps from a little temporary creek that ran under the health centre.  It got worse by the next day and washed out the bottom step:

The road to the dump washed out, here it is on the evening of June 10:

It was around 4 feet deep in places, and at least 6 feet across:

Here's a creek that formed from the co-op parking lot.  It had several channels, and was around 2 feet deep in places:
