Drenched!

The rain came down yesterday and through last night and on and off most of today.  Just in the last hour, things seem to be brightening up a tiny bit.  The forecast says that the worst of the rain is over, but now the temperature drops and we may get a bit of snow!!  We won’t see sun until Wednesday…maybe.  Above is the farm where I lived in 2013/14, taken by the owner.   The water has flooded the road, and the little trickling stream that ran past my window is a raging torrent.  But as you can see, everything is lovely and green.  🙂  I hope she has invested in some snorkels for the horses.

Three pictures of the parking lot at the Ambassador Hotel.

It’s still coming down!

The bottom picture is after the snow melt of 2014.   It was worse then at the bottom of Bur Brook Road.   That’s when I saw the muskrat swimming in the yard.

I watched a few trucks drive carefully through the puddled road, but then this dude came flying down the hill.  Unfortunately I missed it when the water sprayed about 10 feet in the air, and it looks quite subdued here, but you could tell that he had been going around looking for places like this because there was all kinds of muck and debris hanging all over the truck.

A couple of shots of the swampy area at the bottom of Creekford Road.  It is usually swampy, with a stream running through it.

While looking at water’s edges, I spotted these, my first little ones of the year.  Just what the world needs…more Canada Geese.  Lol.

Looking east from Day’s Road–the Disney-esque spires of Collins Bay Penitentiary, and more sullen skies.

Front Road in front of the Invista plant.

King St. at Brock.

Compared to the picture I took the other day, I would say it has risen another two or three inches.  I bet they’re getting nervous.  But hopefully this is the peak.

I wonder how Angela is doing out there at Chaffey’s Locks.

  1. Hi Karen 🙋 it’s pretty wet here too! Lots of flooding, many with roof and basement issues for sure. All the locks around are working violently with all extra flow through! Back to work tomorrow on Place d’Armes…hopefully the road to work on 15 hwy is ok and the parking lots down off Wellington St. are ok. I heard Opinicon Road has some impassable spots currently, so the back way isn’t an option. We actually had a bit of nice weather this afternoon, I wasn’t sure what that orange light was at first, but it was the SUN! ☀️🌻 Hope your street is ok and you don’t have any house water issues ☔️ Take care 🚣🏻

    • Yup, everything is OK where I am. Wellington St. parking lots are fine too, but you will have found that out already. It sure will be great when the summery weather comes back.
