Last week we were hit by a few powerful rain storms, which also had the effect of melting most of the remaining snow. There has been a fair amount of flooding in the region as a result of these recent rain events and warm weather.
After work, Friday I made sure to take advantage of the warm weather and went for a walk with my camera to check out the flooding in part the 'lowlands' of the Cary Institute, the area west of Fowler Road, which Wappinger Creek flows through.
