Rain!

We get Weather here, but usually from ocean related storms. This time it's from the other side. We've had rain every day for probably a week. The cove is damp with a lot of the water coming in through a couple of streams that empty into the cove, but other than that, not too bad.

  • We're located on the other side of Gloucester in Magnolia. We saw lots of flooding on the shore road behind Grey Beach. Clarke Pond had spread over the road. There were hazard saw horses and police tape warning you not to try to enter Raymond Street from Manchester.

    The water was also very high on Hesperus Avenue near the road to Mussell Point and by the parking lot for Rafe's Chasm.

    Now let's hope the water settles down and clears up for the weekend.

    Your photos are beautiful. Thanks for posting from The Cove.
