Spring Flood 2011 at Jungle Lane

On my way home from MA earlier today, I knew when I got to Rte. 197 and the water was lapping on the edges of the road that we would have highwater at home after last night's rain. When I got home one of the first things I did was take some photos.
water pouring over the top of the dam
and through the chutes

What is usually a small pool has overflowed its banks.

You can see where there is a second stream
in the upper right where water has washed over the lawn at the end of the dam.

There's so much water in the pond
that you can't really see the top
of the dam at all.

Water is very close to the floor of the bridge.  It wouldn't
surprise me if it was underwater during the night.

April 5th

Wish I could remember where I got this from online.  Reminds me of spring lambs, green grass and leaves on the trees.  All the rain of the last couple of days has taken lots of the snow away.  I can't wait for sunshine and warmer weather and SPRING!
