SNOW! We had about four inches of it last night, following a day-long rain. Today, despite cold temperatures, a bright sun made short work of that snow, adding the snowmelt to an already close-to-overflowing Hudson River. I drove along Spier Falls Road at Moreau today and discovered my favorite little island was well submerged beneath roiling, rushing water.
Here's a photo of that same little island in calmer waters. (I took this photo on January 17 this year.)
The river was powerfully plunging over Spier Falls Dam, pounding with explosive force and a mighty roar on the rocks below. The juxtaposition of all this raging water next to the No Swimming sign gave me a bit of a chuckle.
