suns along the Mohawk

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.]
