Heavy rains on top of Spring frost-out means high water levels in our local rivers.  The Deerfield has breached its banks:

Both of these shots were taken in the center of my town, Charlemont.

Of course, “everywhere” by definition includes the cellar here at the Rolling J Farm:

That’s about two feet of water, enough to submerge and disable our water pump, electric water heater and oil burner/furnace.  I was obliged to take the day off from work to work on getting a pump going and trying to dry things out.

**Update – We have running water and the water heater has been resurrected, though our heating system is down for the count.  More to follow as our efforts continue.
