A Week Later

Although the Mohawk River is back within its banks, it still looks like something from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The picture below is of the bridge over a branch of the Mohawk between Peebles Island in Waterford and Van Schaick Island in Cohoes, just North of where Delaware Avenue was being flooded (see the previous post).

In addition to the river color, note the tree stuck on the bridge abutment. When I crossed the bridge to take the picture of Delaware Avenue, the water was less than a foot below the bridge deck. I would say the river rose a little more than a foot above that level later in the day.
