Snow melt in the North Country (VT and NH) and rain down in these here parts are swelling the Connecticut river to flood stage, and even though the flood warnings are targeted at areas an hour or two to our south, it’s still pretty impressive to watch it all flow by on it’s way to the sea.
Below the Turners Falls Dam, the Great Falls Bridge spans a maelstrom of frightful foam and crashing waves:
Apparently I missed the highest water, if these piles of logs and lumber cast up on the rocks like bloody bones are any indication:
I was awed by the thunder and glory of it, even as a steady rain mixed with the mists blowing down the valley to the ocean far below.
Roll on, Great River, roll on!
