Belmont is flooded
We are underwater here! I bet we've had 10 inches of rain over the past 3 days. The community gardens are submerged in many areas. We haven't had a flood like this in at least 20 years - maybe ever. It would be nice if the storm would move out soon. We have beautiful warm DRY! weather predicted after it leaves and I am looking to getting to work in the garden.
Below are photos from around town. The high school was closed today - the access road was flooded. My teenager got to help pump water from our basement - a non-stop effort as we only have a little wet-vac. Friends tell me stories about not being about to get home because of closed roads. The worst was Beaver Brook, which runs near our community garden plots. Its way out of it banks and more like Beaver River.
