Doesn't it seem like a heavy rain brings rivers up a lot faster than it once did? We get one stormy day and BOOM! We're running for higher ground.
I was blowing through Duryea yesterday afternoon when I stopped to look at the Lackawanna River at the Stephenson Street Bridge.
The river was running high and fast, but still well within its banks. I should have shot the Susquehanna just downstream a bit. It was above flood stage, and getting higher, and a disgusting shade of brown/orange.
I'll spare you the extensive lecture in favor of the short version. High water can be dangerous. Please be careful.
