The Piscataquis broke the all time record for this date by 25% and it's still rising.

USGS Real-Time Water Data for USGS 01031500 Piscataquis River near Dover-Foxcroft, Maine

My little brook is roaring. They all are in Maine. The Mousam River in West Kennebunk is way over its banks with a new record 25% higher than ever for the date. The Sheepscot has crested at nearly double the old record.

Any reports from the Maine bunch?

Thank you for the nice photos, 007! River's are full. Good that we've had a relatively dry spell.

WoW! Nice pics 007!

Good suggestion Northern Maine Land Man for those living on or near the rivers. Is it a requirement to have flood insurance along these rivers?

We live on the side of a "mountain" and even our Gutters over flowed onto our drive way.
"Evennnnnn thou we called the town in the spring and said "Ahem, we have a gutter problem here and they said, Okay will add your name to the list.

Okay so0oo my DH called yesterday and said,
List?
What number am I at?
I didn't know this town had that many people on a list.
So the town fire chief " I believe he was called
"Crash" ....
.......by the secretary.
She was going to have him come over.

Well he came over an hour later and checked it out.
So help is ... "said to be" on the way. When... I'm not sure.

LOL
Gotta love it. Only in Maine. On the way to a fire one winter our tanker driver slid on the ice and went off the road. The tanker tipped up 45 degrees and just stopped half tipped over. The driver very carefully climbed out. We took a look at it and slowly drained off the water and the tanker flopped back on it's wheels all by itself. This was before everybody had cell phone cameras or we'd have some great photos.
