a little jamming along the Mohawk

  Despite heavy rain and melting snow, the break-up of a relatively thin layer of ice probably helped us to avoid major ice jamming and resultant flooding today along the Stockade portion of the Mohawk River.  Ice accumulated along the banks, but there has been no major jamming at the CSX trestle and so no back-up and flooding. The slideshow below has photos taken today (Thursday, January 31, 2013) around 1 PM and then around 4 PM in Riverside Park and at the dead end of Washington Avenue. [update (Friday 8 AM): Water levels went down all night and the flood threat has passed.]

  1. I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

    • Connor, I’ve noticed that my website has some problems when using Safari, but I haven’t seen it through Explorer. On the other hand, Firefox often seems to take much longer to load than Safari. I have no ideas about how to deal with any of the browser issues.
