100 Year Storm

It is called the 100 year storm.   Eighteen inches of rain has fallen in less than a month completely overwhelming the many rivers and lakes of the area.   My commute, which has been on hold for a few days was an eye opener. I don't live in Taunton, Ma and subsequently didn't keep up with the news.  

I made it a point to bring my camera and the following are two days after the rains have stopped.   Taunton is a very old New England city and many of the buildings involved in this 100 year storm, were there for the last two or in some cases three.


  1. Unbelievable amount of rain...and the rainy season is just starting!! Any bad flooding in Fairhaven? Heard all about Fall River and Freetown..but nothing about the NB area.

  2. One of those places is where I work.
    No bathroom in building must walk to another building. sewer backed up in front of building. cellar full of water, no place to park.

    i have a house in fairhaven. how is the bike path flooded?

    Good luck with your bike ride and stay dry.

  3. I've always wanted to canoe commute...

  4. What a mess! Sorry to hear about the flooding ... I hope it can be cleaned up quickly, and that there is not too much damage.
