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. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Rains return

It is 8:50 a.m. and sprinkling on and off, with occasional breaks in the clouds for sun just to confuse things.

The Cascades Brook is flowing at 5";
The temperature is 52 degrees F;
The pressure is at 28.79" of Hg and steady;
The USFS Fire Danger Class is NONE;
The surfaces show a sheen of wet, and last night left a dew on things to boot.

The National Weather Service calls for rain this morning until 4 p.m. and then occasional showers in the evening.
Still, it is unseasonably warm.

The development project next door continues at full throttle.

When I headed down to Olean this morning I saw a full armada of ducks heading away from the shore in a phalanx formation as if they were the introductory scene from a oscar winning film. The water before them was like glass and the water behind them showed tracks of turbulent disturbance and flow. Quite the image.
