|The bridge down to the brook and sauna--chunks of it were washed away.|
|C Road which leads to the main road into town--yep, that's thigh high water.|

Here are some photos I snapped today--Hurricane Irene sent lots of rain our way: flooding the river, knocking down trees.
After work I was like a child, helplessly enthralled by the rush of water, ecstatic to get thigh high in the cool run-off. N and I even took a canoe and paddled from the shoulder of the road into what is normally field and woods, now flooded and covered in over 6 feet of water--it was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. It was so cool to glide through the woods, imaging us adventurers on a journey through the bayou!
