Mother Nature is angry...

We caught the tail end of Hurricane Irene today. The wind wasn't too bad but torrential rains cause massive flooding. Sections of major roads around me are GONE. Many people have been evacuated from low lying areas or areas along one of our many rivers. Lots of areas nearby are completely cut off due to high waters. Living at the top of a hill like I do I escaped the worst of it, my road is flooded in one direction but I can get out in the other direction if I have to.

The bridge below my driveway, this time of year I can usually step across the stream underneath.

The normally placid stream from the other side of the bridge.

And the typically tranquil pond beyond.
