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.

the cabin in the background

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

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