Remember the above and below picture of people canoeing. You can see the weir steps at Pultney Bridge.
Green water but quite low.
On the right where the trees are, see the concrete and the step and the retaining wall all around the trees, remember that and then look at the next picture...
Now you see it...
Now you don't!
And the weir on Christmas Eve 2013, following gale force winds and rain. Guessing I would say that is at least 5 feet higher. And the noise! it was booming as it was rushing by
I forget how strong nature is.
I hope all the people who were flooded out of their homes or had no electricity for 4 days are able to have a Christmas day again this coming weekend.
