We spent most of the day doing yard clean up....well not me so much as I had to leave for work at 10:30am....but Jessie came over to help out so her & Popster did most of it. It was an absolute nightmare getting to Schenectady. We have to cross the river which was going to crest sometime in the afternoon way, way above any previous level of flooding, so the two bridges I could normally use were closed. It took me 40 mins to go about 3+ miles to a different bridge. Most of the traffic turned out to be people wanting to check out the river!!! Duh!!!
I managed to get home okay with just a couple detours but it was so dark I didn't get to see much of the flooding. It is so bad in all the low areas around us as all the creeks overflowed & that's what caused the river to flood. We are very lucky having just a few hours clean up as there are so many people that have lost everything.
I spent the afternoon on the golf course with the last group of my Junior Golf League...more on that later.....& these are some of the pics I took. Isn't it amazing that it can be so beautiful the day after such bad weather!
