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.

This was supposed to be a sunny day?!

This was supposed to be a sunny day?!

Ah well....
At least the rains hold off until around 2pm.

Presently it is 7:49 a.m. and the conditions are:
29.97" of mercury and steady;
43 degrees F;
overcast with a light breeze;
otherwise dry with no new precipitation as yet;
the Cascades Brook is at 5";
USFS Forest Fire Danger Class is None.

The development continues at full throttle to our south.

Yesterday morning, starting at 4 a.m. ish we lost power, and only regained it around 5:30-6:00 p.m.
That was a fun reminder of last year's ice storm complete with fire in the fireplace, flashlights and oil lamps.
Two telephone poles were taken out early Sunday morning in a car accident/fatality.
New poles, new lines, and an accident scene needed tending to.
Olean Street/Reservoir Road was closed from Holden at Bailey Road to Worcester's Dawson Road.
It would appear that someone went into the Olean Street curve near Dawson Road much much too fast.
It was hard to complain or begudge the loss of power under the circumstances.
