Water, Water. September 8, 2011

It’s everywhere.  Continuing rains have pushed river levels to what would be astonishing heights if we hadn’t just lived through Irene.

The Deerfield flows over Deerfield #4 dam on the line between Charlemont and Buckland:

That’s about 10,000 CFS, a flow rate topping most recent Spring flood levels.

We’re expecting a couple of days of generally fair weather, which should allow some of the current ground water to make its exit before the next Rain Event brings the level back up.

Meanwhile, New York is flooding again, perhaps to an extent not seen even during the devastation of Irene.

Positive thoughts are entirely appropriate.

Sending positive vibes in your general direction and aimed straight toward you and yours.

Such a shame we can’t divert this overabundant water to Texas, where the land is parched and the Governor is an idiot.

Hang in there.

np, thanks. We’re doing well here, and planning on contributing to relief efforts for VT and NY via fund-raising at my public radio station, accessible to anyone/anywhere at WAMC.org.

And no amount of water will cure Perry’s idiocy, unless (God forbid) it covers his nose.

Thanks CR. I will make sure to pop over to WAMC.org and make a donation (big fan of the public broadcasting, even worked at one for a couple of years).

I’m afraid you’re right about Perry. Like Lady MacBeth’s hands, no amount of water will wash away that hot mess.

Keeping you guys in my thoughts.

Take care.
