I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to get to work tomorrow.  IF I'm going to get to work tomorrow.  You see, work (and Charlotte's day care) is on the other side of the Pequabuck River from me.  And the Pequabuck River is rather... larger than it was.  It is currently rampaging down Route 72 in Bristol.  My first thought was that since it is probably up over Route 229, I'll take the back route - the one I take coming home from day care.  Then I saw the pictures on the news of four feet or so of water galloping down Route 72 - and recognized the left turn I take on the "back route."

I could go through Plainville, but Plainville is flooded.  There's a lot of water between me and the office.

Heck, I'm not sure day care will even be open.

Could be an interesting morning following the Garmin.

So far the office is closed for the morning because of the power outage. Go on YouTube and search Pompton Lakes and you'll see what the other side of town looks like.

So far the only damage we've seen is a lot of the neighbor to the south's willow in our drivway. And side yard. And front yard. None seems to down on their side of the fence. The neighbor to the north has a few huge branches down, mostly from his trees.

Oh, and we've had no power since about 6:30 am. Right after we woke up but before we could make coffee. And this is the first time since before noon that my Blackberry has been able to access the internet.

Anonymous above was me. My blackberry decided to log me off, silly thing.

Stupid question but can you call the day care? Do they have a snow emergency number?

They do indeed - I called before I was even out of bed this morning. All was well. I found the one road between them and me that was open.

Sounds somewhat worse then my location. We've got roads closed and still some high water but should be back in its banks later today. My sister in VT however is dealing with a great deal of flooding but thankfully no damage for them.

I heard that Vermont was getting slammed. Most of our smaller rivers seem to have gone back down, but the big ones - the Housatonic, the Farmington, and the Connecticut, are expected to keep rising for the next few days.

Luckily we came through with flying colors. It's handy being heavily wooded - the trees at the edge of the road got thrashed around, but the rest of them just get their tip-tops blown on. A heavy canopy has some advantages.
