Flooding at Heritage Park

I went down to Heritage Park in East Longmeadow on my break today to take pictures of all the flooding there. Amazing! I've never seen the water this high there.

Picnic tables and benches almost submerged!

They were working hard to clear the drains, and pumping water onto North Main Street. Dunno how effective that's going to be...

Weird to see trees and shrubs sitting in the water.

The geese and ducks, on the other hand, were having a grand time.

at least the geese are having fun

Really good photos. I wonder how this happened!

I think it was a combination of 4 or so inches of rain with clogged drains.
