suns along the Mohawk

weekend river watch along the Mohawk

. . . 6 AM Saturday: free flowing . . .

– Flood stage (223′) reached 8 PM Friday; down to 219′ by midnight –

– ice jams and fog at Riverside Park (7 AM Friday March 11)

[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.

As always, click on the gallery photos for a larger version and scroll over a picture for its description.  Scroll down our homepage for ice jam photo sessions earlier this week, and links to images from this time last year.
