Brattleboro Gets Rain


Just noting for the record the rather spectacular rainfall we just experienced in Brattleboro. This was some of the hardest rain I've seen in quite a while. "Buckets!" as they like to say.

I think I saw a squirrel go by in a small boat.

Along with the rain was some rather percussive, precision thunder and lightning displays.

It was glorious!

Mother Nature showing her stuff!

That rain...

It continues.

The squirrel is now selling passes to "ride the rapids" to neighborhood animals. No takers, yet.

All the world is her stage

Oh boy, the light and sound show of Mother Nature has begun in
earnest again and looks like we're in for a long treat of the theatrics of a
bonafide thunder and lightning storming.

All the world is her stage. Thanks Mom!

Squirrels and Thunder

One hid out on my porch to avoid the buckets of lightning.
Cowering on top of my sauna box.
I do so love the little critters.

And the rain goes on

WVEW and WKVT knocked off the air by the storm.

Williams Street closed.

Squirrels have been known......

to like water and boats....some are highly skilled at it.
Perhaps Twiggy has a few cousins in Bratt.

and

A bit of a washout on RT 30 not far from town. It's ok now, but it's clear that there was some flooding yesterday.

As usual, beautiful clear post-storm weather.

Summer storm!

It reminded me of the Summer thunderstorms in the Catskills when I was a kid.

Chocolate river

The rivers are chocolate colored with the mud runoff.
