Turbulent Falls

It's been pouring... I mean torrential, steady downpours here for two days now. Flood warnings abound. Yesterday, I posted an image of the door of the Saccarappa power station at Saccarappa Falls. Here is a shot of the falls. They are so hard to see, because we're at flood stage here. But take my word for it, these are the falls on the Presumpscot River in Westbrook, a suburb of Portland. The original name of  the city was Saccarappa... an Indian word meaning, "towards the rising sun."
Thanks Dina for getting me thinking...

The sun... well, perhaps Wednesday. I'm thinking positive here.

  4. For one minute I thought that was the view in your street. I feel a bit better now I know they are the falls but still, it looks rough and a bit scary.

  12. We here in Texas are dry again even though the drought has been officially declared to be over. Wish we had some of that excess water you're finding at your place.

  13. The building seems to be sitting in the torrent. I'm surprised the foundation doesn't erode away.
