[Friday morning, March 11] It’s not yet the ides of March, but we already need to watch our backs along the Stockade section of the Mohawk, as snow-melt and rain fill the River and its tributaries and bring our annual flood watch. As long as the River lets me get up-close, I plan to monitor the situation throughout the weekend, watching for ice jams and checking the level of the River. The slideshow and gallery below will be updated as I get new photos.
