Photos of Unusual Whitewater on Swollen Local Streams


After around five inches of rain yesterday, 78,000 people in Connecticut are still without power, with many more than that powerless over the border in New York. Roads and highways are closed due to flooding or trees down. The photos taken here are some small streams which have ballooned to over four times their width and maybe ten times their depth with water coursing so fast there are actually whitecaps! The usually delightful sound of these barely trickling streams, is now stirred to a cacophonous raucous, as this torrent of insistent rushing water surges on, propelled forward and down with incredible force. In my eighteen years here, I’ve not seen anything like this. It was hard to photograph the speed and sound, but these photos begin to hint what greeted me today. Enjoy…

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
