Schools are opening 2 hours late and some kids just won't get to school today. They can't cross the washouts to get to the bus.

Record floods for the date on some rivers.

Does anyone know what the snowpack is up on the West Branch? I've gone fishing up there when I had to shovel off my campsite, but I'm thinking it's in the feet still.

Right here in this thread there is a link that shows snow pack. Down near the river the snow pack will be deeper than the map shows because it is well shaded. I know a guy who went into the river about 40 years ago in early April on snowshoes when the snowbank caved in under him. Nobody can swim in snowshoes. Two fishermen in a canoe saved him. Here's the link.

NERFC Snow Depth Map

The map shows 15 to 20 inches, but there is much more than that on the south bank where the sun never hits the ground.

The power company has cut back on the flow at Rip Dam to reduce the flooding. With the huge volumes of water right now that little bit won't help much.

So, this mess is all your fault NMLM? You must wait until at least May to replace the mailbox!

It looks pretty high right now. Well up above it's normal high water mark.

I bet MSINA's mail box didn't move. I personally set in in concrete on a pressure treated timber.

I have completed my first kayak trip of the season

Watching the river come up so close to our house, it had lifted a couple planters. So I went out on the river to retrieve them.

The water hasn't bothered it. It has taken quite a beating from the snow plow and the beighbors lawn mower though!
Dexter has evacuated some people because of the high water.

The Wild River in Western Maine is at its all time high for the date at 20 times its normal flow.

The Narraguagus in Down East Maine is also at its all time high for the date and rising, Christmas.

Many rivers north of those are rising fast, but the rain has finally stopped. Be careful if driving in the dark tonight.
