Floods are not Fun

I am amazed at all of the devastation I have seen on the news and in photos.
My husband takes a back road to get to the highway, that takes him to work.
Yesterday, he found a road block and had to find a way around it, which isn't easy, since most of the roads are extreme back roads and probably worse. This is the road he goes on, this is why, he could not.



This is the road that leads to our local rug hooking shop. The shop is further down and to the side of the river that caused this.
This is not a big river, but it is a long one and it is all coming down and flooding the towns it runs through. The river actually goes all the way to the end of the state and out to the ocean, so a lot of damage in it's path. I did not take these pictures, I am staying close to home. We are in a dry zone, luckily.

I heard on the news that you all were hit hard up there. We've had flooding around this area too, but we were lucky and we're fine. Had to drive through streams on the roads, but nothing compared to that. Hope you all are ok!

Oh Debbie! That is horrible!!! Your state got hit by this storm so much harder than here! I hope the water receeds fast and folks did not loose too much from the flooding... take care!

I have heard of all the incredible flooding the east coast has had. You have really gotten your share of precipitation this year. Stay safe and hopefully things will dry out soon.

Well, that's not good. Hope you and yours are warm, toasty and dry. Hang in there! What goes up, must come down...the waters will recede soon and then you'll have the Summer drought! Gotta love New England! =)
