Surviving Mother Nature in New Milford, CT.

March 7, 2011

Just when you think we have things under control, Mother Nature decides to show us just who is boss. With the warm weather we had for just a few days, then the rain that pounded us yesterday, the rivers and streams in Western Connecticut have overflowed their banks and flooded homes and businesses in many towns and cities here.

New Milford has the Housatonic River that winds through the western part of the state, coming down from Massachusetts. It is a beautiful river, provides us with the waters that fill Candlewood Lake, give us Lake Lillinonah in Bridgewater, boating, fishing, water skiing and….. flooding at time.

Our main road into town was closed off today, a second road that saw a small mudslide was also closed which posed a bit of an issue to get from one side of town to the other. I managed to get a few photos today of the Housatonic River downtown, and the flooding that occurred on Youngs Field Road.

My heart goes out to all who are flooded out right now, and those who are waiting for the worst of it to come. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
