photo evidence

I've mention here in passing the wet conditions around here abouts...

A facebook friend posted photos today he took while up on a plane ride.  Thought I'd share.

Here's just one...

That's the town I live by - that cluster up in the top right corner?

And, no, we don't live by lakes.  These are fields, roads, and homes that are covered in water. 

And there's no place for it to go except up thru evaporation.  We're kinda flat around here.

This is a common occurance... My cousin posted this picture.  I think this was the 3rd incident with different equipment and in different places that day.

Here's a picture of a county highway.  Believe it or not, this was paved.  So wet that there is no base anymore.

These are not isolated areas.

It's everywhere.  Town southwest of here about 20 miles has no roads that are safe to get to it.  You can get there on ONE road- driving thru water...

We need it to stop raining and snowing.


  1. Boy, that's wet! The only comfort is that with the longer days, it does dry up pretty quickly once the sun comes out. Of course the sun needs to cooperate.

  2. OMG, that's awful!! in Connecticut it's been the snowiest, rainiest winter/spring and ground water is high, but not with the destruction you have there. Let's hope for a warm dry summer.

  3. It's kinda like that up in Sierra Valley, to the west of us, though not as bad and more selective. The roads are clear, the fields are lakes - but we aren't flat to start with.

  4. We've had lots of rain, but you've got us beat. Here's to drying out soon!!!!
