It's 48.9 degrees and gray at 5:45

From the WKTV website: "A flood watch is in effect for Central New York through Wednesday evening.

A slow moving cold front will bring us unsettled weather for the next several days. For day, scattered showers ahead of the front will make for another wet day. The best chance of widespread rain is late this afternoon through tonight. A rumble of thunder is possible as the cold front passes this evening.

The front slows down as an area of low pressure passes through. This will bring us another round of rain showers on Wednesday. Rainfall over the next few days could be enough to once again bring rivers and streams above flood stage. We'll keep you posted.

Chilly and unsettled on Thursday, with drier and warmer weather arriving by the weekend."

From "Rusty," this amazing view of the Falls at the outlet of Bailey Lake, taken on Sunday, using three photographs "stitched" together.


Here is a picture that Jody Hildreth took last Thursday at "Turkey Falls" when, he said,

"It looked like something from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory -
a waterfall of chocolate milk."

Late afternoon on Main Street.

There doesn't seem to have been any noticable amount of damage to Village streets from last Thursday's storm, but ...................

... some roads in the countryside have washouts along the edge of the pavements, and .....

......... there's a real "car-catcher" at the corner of Route 20 and Madison Street!

There is still enough water in the Route 12 underpass to cause problems: I took a picture of one Northbound vehicle that had "died" after racing through the deepest part of the pond but have opted not to publish it, here: too embarrassing!

The "Green Acres" Driving Range is getting plenty of use ........

....... and the greens at the Sangerfield Golf Course look inviting.

The Waterville Garden Club, whose members maintain the planting around the high school sign as well as all of the summertime "buckets" along Main Street, will be starting their Summer activities, soon. Watch for news of their Annual Plant Sale, which usually takes place in early June.

The sweet-smelling blossoms on the Norway Maples in Monument Park.

Grecian Wind Flowers on Bill O'Dowd's side lawn open on rare occasions when the sun shines.


Wild Food Foragers are out in country fields gathering

Dandelion Greens ........

........... watching for "Fiddleheads"

and Morels!


I've begun my annual battle with "Bishop's Leaf" or "Goutweed."

You're supposed to be able to eat that, too, but I just want it out of my flowerbeds!
