After the rains

Out and about today with the camera, finally, after over a week of rain. I cannot believe the flooding here! Here's some shots from around town.

Sandbags packed by the front door of Royco Auto Parts store in the Village of Fishkill.

Rushing water in the Wappingers Creek, Red Oaks Mill

Pumpkins and debris washed up along the new shoreline, Overlook Road.

Hudson Valley Garden Center was flooded after the week of rains.

A whirlpool forms above the flooded culvert in the marsh near Rt. 82 & Arthursburg Road, Lagrangeville.

The Wappingers Creek overflowed south to the Hudson Valley Garden Center, Overlook Road

The Wappingers Creek rapids at Red Oaks Mill. One week ago the creek bed was almost completely dry.

Route 9 in Fishkill was shut down from three lanes to one in either direction due to flooding from the Fishkill Creek.

The start of a beautiful sunset after the long week of storms.

Wow. I hope not much damage has been done and all are ok.

We're fine here...some low-lying towns got his hard from what I've read. Most of the damage came after the rains when the creeks overflowed.

Goodness! Just look at all that water! Glad to hear your property wasn't affected.

Sad, seeing those floating pumpkins :(

I couldn't believe it. People were pulling over looking at the flooding along the roadsides...the batting cages/driving range were under water. The poor pumpkins and the whole "Family Fun" day a washout. I suspect it'll dry out fast enough, but I heard more rain is in the forecast.
