You can also compare the wooden fence behind the markings. At 27th the lower parts were flooded.

And also other people are interested to the marks - not only the users of LK :rolleyes:

The years are not brothers, as they say... and not sisters too! :D
Last year April the 1st - river is totally frosen, Apr.4th - some free water is seen.

and this year - the last day of March and the flood is full strength
