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.

Snow! Again!

The brook is running at 6.4" and the second channel is just barely still running. (Yesterday the second channel was running strong, the falls were roaring and the ice was breaking up with the warmth and the rain.)

It is snowing again, just now, which is indeed funny.
This morning I looked out at the product of yesterday's warmth and rains. The last snow storm had pretty much entirely melted away and the only evidence of snow on the ground was from the storm before that. I could see the old path that had been shoveled out, the parking spaces, and the bare ground cleared for the shed, then covered over for so long, that I had even forgotten about it. Now it will get covered again, only to be rediscovered again some unknown number of days in the future. Fun.

Right now it is 11:13 a.m. and the conditions are:
28.76" of Hg and falling;
38 degrees F (yet the snow is sticking to the ground and natural objects that were frozen over last night);
the USFS Fire Danger Class is NONE;
again, the brook is running at 6.4" and the second channel is open;
there is a light breeze and it is snowing enthusiastically.
