Mother's Day Flood of 2006

Berwick-Somersworth bridge, 15 May 2006

The week of rain, according to the electronic rain gauge in our yard, went like this:
  • May 10-11 = 1 inch
  • May 12 = 0.5 inch
  • May 13 = 4.7 inches
  • May 14 = 2.5 inches
  • May 15 = 2.1 inches
  • May 16 = 0.8 inches

Not quite a foot, but the monthly total is close to 14 inches and we have more on the way.

Home impacts have been minimal. Work has been disrupted for both of us, but is approaching normalcy.

C&A walked to the (closed) bridge on Monday to see the Salmon Falls River way higher than we've seen it.
