What April Showers Bring.

DCFC0018 Flooding at the junction of the Schoharie Creek and the Mohawk River following four inches of rain yesterday.
DCFC0021 Looking up the Schoharie Creek from where it joins the Mohawk. If the Gilboa Dam broke, this is the direction from which a huge wall of water would come down the creek. The stone arches that you see are the remains of the Schoharie Aqueduct that used to carry the Erie Canal across the Schoharie Creek. In the sky you can see the hint of a rainbow. About 1/4 mile upstream from here is where the Thruway bridge collapsed and took ten people down with it.


  • Wow, I knew there was flooding, but I had no idea that it got THAT high!
