Shawhseen Flood

The Shawsheen River is over its banks here, a few miles upstream from where I live.

After last night's storm

Last night we were hit with a nasty storm, several inches of rain and heavy wind gusts.

This afternoon, I went into the forest to see what damage was done.

This was blocking the trail to Brackett Pond.
Here even worse at the entrance to the Field Pond area.
A large split open pine tree branch.

Water levels were high and found new places to flow..

The ponds ice was receding as well..
