I wanted to share a few pictures of this morning's record setting flood waters lapping Burlington's shoreline. You remember this photo (below) from April 20.
The water continued to rise to over 102 feet, setting an all time record. This is today's view from a nearby vantage point. Notice that I couldn't pedal to the same spot. As it was, I walked my bike through some rose bushes to get this close.
As the snow melts and more rain falls (expected this evening) the water levels may continue to rise. Clearly, we are now into uncharted territory.
After the water recedes let's all pitch in to lend a hand in the cleanup. Burlington and it's beautiful waterfront deserve our immediate attention to restore the beaches, the park land, and the bike path so we all can enjoy it this summer.
