The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts.

Pleasant, if Cloudy Day

Fair amount of traffic at the Cascades up on Cataract Street.
Some traffic here at the trailhead as well.

Presently it is 1:35pm;
It is 40.6 degrees F and rising;
75% humidity and steady;
29.85" of mercury and steady;
The USFS Forest Fire Danger is NONE.

The ground is wet, but not nearly as muddy and boggy as last week.
There are a few isolated spots of snow and ice but they are fairly infrequent.

There is some water coming down the Cascades and the Brook continues to babble.

UPDATE 4:10pm:
The trail traffic and sightseers at the Cascades continue all day long despite the cloudiness.
A very excellent thing to see!

Presently it is 42.8 degrees F and rising;
It is 65% humidity and falling;
It is 29.85" of mercury and steady.
