Irene and friends...

Below are photos of the bank of the Connecticut river right after it crested just above flood stage a couple mornings after tropical storm Irene lashed interior New England. Whately and the northern pioneer valley were lucky to be spared the worst the storm had to offer in wind and flood damage, while our neighbors to the north were not so lucky.

Lots of interesting tracks were left in the fresh mud revealed by the receding waters.  Click on the images to see them in better detail.

Traffic lights being knocked out or going wonky was about the most exciting casualty of Irene in Northampton and Whately.

To go or not to go. That is the question.

And now onto the main event... Rufi!
Well, are you going to pet me or what? I'm not just here to look good.
