The brook height is at about 7 inches (jumping to 8 occasionally) as 400 acres worth of water comes over the falls! Worth a visit!
Since noon yesterday, we've had 2.32 inches of rain; on top of the .55 inches we got the previous 24 hours, that's a lot of water!
At 10:30, it is 70.7 degrees and steady.
The barometer is 29.12 inches of mercury and steady. We now have blue skies, 'though it was raining hard as recently as 9 am.
Damp and dripping in the woods today!

The Cascades Brook is running again after all of the rain of the past half week. Our last envoy to the stream gauge said it was hovering around 2".
The fire danger had been suppressed by all of the rain and is LOW.
The soil is less dust and more dirt and the chirping insects are vociferous at night.

Please forgive us if you went by earlier and we hadn't yet gotten the sign changed.The US Forest Service has put our fire danger for today back to NONE, due to last night's thunderstorms (which we hope you got a chance to enjoy!). Here at the Lodge, we got 0.31 inches of rain in total from the storm.
Not enough to get Cascades Brook running again, so it remains in its usual August rocky state.
At 11 am, it is 75 degrees and steady under clear blue skies.
The barometer is at 29.26 inches of mercury and steady
