We have not seen flooding like this for over 30 years. Thanks for your concern.

NEU and fellow New England forum members:

If you need to leave your home due to flooding you can park your Airstream in our barnyard or in the barn next to "The Tube". We've got water/30amp electric/WiFi/waste dump (qty 3 30amp plugs) Oh, the barnyard is a muddy mess but it's not in danger of being under water.

Unbelievable what a difference a hundred and fifty miles can make!!! From about Augusta, Maine North we've had gorgeous weather all weekend, right thru today. It's so unusual to have such a sharp line of demarcation between weather systems. The news tonight suggests that things may be moderating for tommorrow.

This brings back memories of our mid-America century floods of the 1990's like they were yesterday We feel so sad that you all are enduring this. We hope that the much needed weather change comes soon and that those of you in the regions of the flood waters emerge safely--life and health concerns first and possessions after. (But let's all send out really strong vibes for the safety of the Airstreams in the regions too ) ~G

Firedog, I'm just up the road in southern NH if you want to move your AS. Let me know. You can tow it here in 15 minutes.

Sun is good. I'm happy to hear it is still up there and we are starting to see some "brightening" of the sky where I live! It was quite the experience to understand what it feels like to live in the rainy sections of the country (Oregon? Washington?) but I'm done now with this experience...I don't want any more of it.

We made it thru another day staying home and the rain continues to fall sporadically in Northeastern New England. We felt better staying put at our home manning the pumps and tending to other aspects of flood control than evacuating (thank-you, tho, to everyone's kind offers of courtesy parking). We traveled around the area yesterday and witnessed quite a bit of devastation. On one part of the Merrimack River, one marina's dock's were totally destroyed. The docks are a pile of mangled wood and aluminum. Some of the docks broke free and traveled out with the tide only to collide and destroy another marina's docks further down the river. Many boats are damaged too but luckily everyone, so far, is safe and sound. There have also been reports of two major sewer mains breaking up river on the Merrimack which spells a health hazard too for those of us living downstream. My fingers are crossed that some of the older dams hold up for a few more days else the situation could quickly escalate further.

Wink So true`

Yukionna,
That's the main thing..Everyone is alive and well..
The water damages can be resolved later.
On a grim note..I also heard of the raw sewage break..What was it? Something like 35 million gallons??? How in the world did that happen??
Not everyone went to use the loo at the same time I hope.~!
As we speak or, rather I should say, type..I'm having a new sump pump system installed..Grrr, just thinking about my cork flooring going bye bye..
It must be letting up as the flow of water coming in is less per hour.
Marina docks can be rebuilt, boats can be reordered..even cars can be replaced, etc.
I personally think you did the right thing by staying..
Just be sure you have an escape route, in case the situation changes
We'll all get together and have stories to share after this is all over with...
I'll buy the first round...
Take care of yourself folks~!!
ciao

We are starting to feel the repercussions of the sewage break...Salisbury Beach is now closed due to flooding and contamination. No word yet on how long the clean-up will take. Good thing we didn't schedule our spring biz mtg at the beach this year.

Attached is a scan of a recent newspaper photo of what the Salisbury Beach campground looks like right now.
