About Today’s Photo:
Rivers and streams were very high yesterday after the torrential rains. By the time I took this shot at the Huntington Gorge around midday, the water level had already dropped 2-3 feet! More rain today will just increase the risk of flooding especially along larger rivers like the Winooski and Lamoille.
