Default Flood Damage Pics (couple vids too-56k little wait)

Just a few of the pics I snapped of the rain fall damage, spent the whole day monday driving around checking out and snapping pics of the damage in the surrounding towns but here are a few of my town. Only one road in or out of town was left and that was barely passable even with a 4x4, the rest were gone.

All these pics are of different roads within 2-3 miles from my house.

This isn't the worse section of road we crossed over, it was just the safest one that I could let my "Camera Crew" ( my wife and sis-in-law ) get out of the vehicle at. The S10 ZR2 behind me turned around wussy

south eastern NH got slammed, southern coast of ME didn't get it too easy either.

Here'* another vid so you can see and hear the running water, qaulity kinda sucks since I had the pixel setting turned down to save space.

WOW those roads are bad! It looks like they snapped like potato chips. Thankfully we didn't get hit that hard at all.

Started as snow and freezing rain Sunday afternoon then changed to rain late night into Monday morning. Rain washed away the snow except for on top of the hills and mountains.

Warm enough down here that it'* not freezing.
