Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts.

Snow isn't gone yet

We did get some snow last night, which is quickly being washed away by cold showers. That smell of thawing is still in the air, though! Wear your waterproofs if you head out today.

At 9am it is 33 degrees
90% humidity (light rain)
Rain accumulation is too small to measure as yet
Barometer is still falling

UPDATE 12:14pm
Though this seems crazy with snow falling last night, and rain today,
the USFS lists the Forest Fire Danger as MODERATE.
My guess is that it was right up until the skies opened and that tomorrow it will be low or none.

UPDATE 11:00pm
At 10pm a skunk was wandering across the driveway. He headed off of the driveway and headed east going up the Cascades Trail towards the bridge.

Today saw 0.39" of rain
Also the USFS got things worked out and today's Forest Fire Danger Class was LOW.
That makes much moire sense.

Presently it is 34.9 degrees F and steady;
It is 98% humidity;
The pressure is 29.47" of mercury and falling.
