March showers

We had Theo visiting us for the past few days, which was wonderful. It’s always a pleasure to see him and it’s nice that he was able to take some time to come down and visit us during our spring break.

The first few days of his visit we were experiencing a terrific wind and rain storm. We stayed inside playing games, cooking, and talking, which was perfect. On Tuesday the sun came out and we were able to enjoy some of the first warm, sunny days of spring. We strolled into town for dinner.

After the storm passed we were able to see that it had really done some damage. The rain and melting snow have raised the level of the water in Rock Pond by a good 3 – 4 feet.

Rock Pond flooded. The usual shoreline is out where those trees are growing. The horizontal object you can see just peeking over the waterline in the middle right is the back of the bench that the neighbors put down by the water's edge.

Some of the nearby houses are flooded and lots of people are pumping out their basements. I’m pleased to say that we have barely a drop in our basement or garage. Many of the nearby roads are flooded out, which made trouble for us when we had to deliver Theo to the train station in Haverhill this morning, but we got him there on time. I hear from the local radio news that some rivers in the area may not even have hit their peak yet.
