Many roads around here are flooded out.
Mine, was flooded, in 2 places, needless to say thats why I have a truck,  not flooded bad though.
And today I learned that a line can still deliver power with a tree on it.

Many roads around here are also being closed due to flooding. Yesterday they said 118 had a lot of water going across it before the Norway town line, and that it might need to be closed. Hopefully the rain is done now, because the roads are very crappy now. Many side roads have been closed, along with other roads. If 218 is closed, than that would have to mean that 197 would be closed also. Looks like it could be a longer ride to the museum for now. If 218 is closed south of Cross Rd, then it would make for a long ride for us. Probably extend our travel time to 2hrs 30min. Talk to you guys later.

Thanks for the link. Could prove to be interesting trying to find your way around for a few days.

For us, here in Waterford, it could be very interesting trying to get to the museum this weekend. Me and dad can't make it this weekend any way. Hopefully the roads reopen within the next couple of days. Talk to you guys later.
