It's been raining here since last Friday. I swear we'll have to make the camper into a ark. Since yesterday, we've had another almost 5 inches of rain. I think we've had close to 14+ inches this week. The camper's sitting in a low spot in the yard(good thing the wheels are on a slab). It's super soggy and it can't be pulled out of there for some time now. Camping season is officially over now for us. I can't wait for some sun to come out.

Anyone else here feel like they are going to float away?

Nell

We are having storms pass through here, will also have over the weekend. No where near as bad as NE is getting.

I would like to see what Wappingers Creek looks like now. I and sons used to enter the Submariner's sponsored white water race each year. Art

ArtB,

You wouldn't believe how high the creeks around here are. The Fishkill Creek by Walmart on Rt.9(main road to the county) has completely covered the road(right by the bridge that spans the creek)It's been shut down since about 7pm last night. I've lived here for 40 years and never have I seen the creek come up that high. Part of the Taconic Parkway got washed away last Saturday. It's a royal mess around here right now. The Wappingers Creek in places has overflowed it's banks. It's compariable to the 100 year floods around here.

We've been having a very rainy fall. Granted we just finished a wonderful 5 days without rain, but now we've got that same front the rest of the eastern seaboard has/has had.

Now, on September 27, part of this province really got hit hard, Stephenville, I mean.

Following a very rainy September 150mm/5.9" fell on Stephenville in 24 hours. Here are pictures taken by a sibling of a coworker

& My first vent on Stephenville Flood Day with sequels.

I hope you all fare much better than Stephenville did. They are calling it a 100 year storm. 150 families are out of their homes two weeks later.

Right now, we're really getting a soaking. You can see some of it on the roads webcams
