flooding and sunshine in Scotia after Irene

– Irene visits Jumpin’ Jack’s –

  As a Stockade evacuee from Hurricane Irene, I  woke up in Scotia this refreshing, sunny morning and headed over to see how the north side of the Mohawk was handling the Irene flood waters.  As you can see from this Slideshow, Schonowee Ave. was flooded by 9:30 AM, Jumpin’ Jack’s had more water than any of the onlookers could recall, and Collin’s Lake and the Mohawk River took over most of Collins Park.  Most photos were taken between 9:30 AM and 10:30 AM, while I mingled with a lot of friendly people, many of whom were snapping pictures; others were shot around 4 PM a couple hours past the River’s cresting.
