More photos...

Here are two more local photos. The first photo shows the mangle-tangle of commercial docks seen on the Merrimack River. The second photo shows the fury of a local river which feeds into the Merrimack River.

I saw this on the news last night. I bet this won't help the electrical situation at the campground. What a shame, I always thought that area was pretty but it looks like it will take months to clean it up.

Water receding here, basement is drying out. Now I have a couple of truck loads of water soaked rug & furniture.... And we were the fortunate ones! Exeter River is down about a foot and dropping.

I feel for your loss as well..
the pictures are captivating~!!
With all of the aggravations and, gathering up our tired, sore muscles..My outlook is exactly the same..We're so fortunate to have what little damages we had. One good thing that came out of it was the installation of the new sump pump system..(even if it set us back several thousands...)
I know what it feel like to be a survivor...
The one good thing is now the basement WILL get cleaned up~
The very best news is: the A/S was not touched~!!
btw, full timing, here we come...

Hi All,

I hope things go well. I lost my Jetta to the floods last year. It filled with water to the dashboard when the sugar river flood here. It's quite a mess.

On a more humorous note we are getting ready to go to our spring buisness meeting in Glen, NH. We are trying to decide what will fit in our 17 foot Carvel that we had previously in our 31 foot Sovereign (now known as the "French Quarters". This ought to be a comedy of error camping trip.

Robin

Looks like you are in for a soggy time. Fun will still be had by all!

After the rains

Living in New England has its benefits, but right now I'm trying to remember what they are.

The only thing that comes to mind right now, is all the mosquitoes and black flies we are going to see in a week or so.

Sigh!!

Looks like Joe English Hill in beautiful New Boston, NH....

I live on the next hill over from Joe English. Meetinghouse Hill - living on the side of a hill/mountain means no issues with all the New England flooding.

Right you are~!!
Old eagle eye..
We live right on the lower half of Cricket Hill and the hill hasn't been as kind to us...
If you could walk thru the woods..stop by for a visit as we're right next to Joe English Pond..

Here's one: things like this almost never happen here, and when they do, the damage is isolated, and things go back to normal very quickly.
in other places, this is commonplace, the damage is worse, and it stays that way for a long long time.

Good grief Mark - I'm hoping the black flies have died off in "a week or so!" I've been slapping and scratching for almost a month here in Maine!
