Washington Crossing – the Delaware After Irene

The Delaware was pretty high at around 3PM yesterday, but it was higher still earlier than that.  Here are some pictures from the afternoon, along Washington Crossing Park.

The water was moving fast!

(Yes, that was me, slipping slightly towards the end.)

River Road was closed further along; I could see the flooding but didn’t walk up to take a picture.  Taylorsville Road was closed from one direction as well.  A lot of people lost power.  One person I know just got their power back today.

We got some water downstairs, but that’s about it.  I think we were very lucky – no power loss.  The most worrying thing for me is the state of our trees.  All that water can undermine older trees, and they can come down suddenly.

But… kids were happy.  No school!
