Super Soaker

So, the rain has finally stopped. Just my luck, especially since I was down to my last pair of dry socks yesterday.

After four straight days of rain, it’s not really any surprised that the waterways of Massachusetts have been stressed to their max. Governor Deval Patrick issued a state of emergency in Waltham, where I spent some time the day before, and took a tour of the Moody Street Dam, which was overflowing.

Here’s a little bit of what we saw:
