    What the hell, we just had a major flood last fall (lost my car) and now there are floods and road closings everywhere again.

    So far keene, nh hasn't been so bad. National Guard is here (again) but I havnt been inconvenienced yet. My sister's house on the other side of the state is under water though. I've never had such a wet flood-full time in new hampshire in such a short span of months.

    State of emergency here. No one in the house has been able to get the work since all the routes we know of were flooded and blocked off. But we did find an alternate route later.

    I fucking hate it when this city floods.

    Ouch, that really suck guys. :( 

    I wish you all luck and keep safe.

    I've only experienced flooding a few times. The last major flood was back in 94. That was pretty scary.

    It seems that Peabody has made the news in MA, Fl and Halifax Novia Scotia, LOL!

    NO surprise considering how bad we feel. The square and Lowell street are flooded and I think Foster street is too.

    Also a few minutes ago a bridge near a dam in Methuen broke. Fortunately the dam is holding

    Fucking New Englad weather.

    Just remember, an inch of rain equals a foot of snow.

    Oh look, the sun's coming out.

    No wait, there it goes again.

    Pisser.

    Already sucked out a hundred galloons of water from our basement.. finally our landlord has just given up.. Had to move all my toys up off of the ground, and still haven't done damage control on the toy collection. :( 

    Manchester really isn't that bad, but I guess were still in flood warning.. though not sure to be honest.

    Stupid NE weather.. Was told that our section is expecting rain all the way through the week

    No rain today so far. Wasn't much yesterday. I haven't been outside so I don't know if the flooding as receeded or if they fixed the streets.
