It is not unusual to see flooding this time of year as soggy ground and remaining snow in the mountains adds to the spring rain. However, thirteen years ago, in 2011, rapid snowmelt, combined with excessive fall and spring rains, brought Lake Champlain to its highest level ever recorded. The lake would rise a little higher in early May, and remain above flood stage through early June, causing devastating flooding to New York, Vermont, and Quebec.
