Rain, Rain and more Rain
The rain this week has been too heavy to describe. Several road closures in our area have made travel impossible. After turning my car around 4 times Tuesday and trying alternate routes, I was finally able to get through. I sat in my car at one road closure and watched the fountain of water gushing up from a man hole opening and wondered how much more rain we could possibly handle.
Several homesowners in our neighborhood are dealing with flooding. We ended up with a little water in a part of the garage, but thankfully have no flooding to report in our home. Our neighbor, less than 50 feet away, is dealing with a flooded basement. Where we live near the shoreline in Connecticut, the rail lines have been oddly quiet. I learned that service between New York and Boston has been suspended due to flooding. Watching the damage caused by the power of so much water is surreal.
