Finally, we got some rain! Though mostly not from Hurricane Joaquin, which turned east before getting as far north as the Potomac. Regardless, the rain was quite welcome; the river is running high, brown, and fast. The asters and goldenrods are perking up, too.
Don’t forget to go to the Three Views page to see the same views in from earlier this year. The change in river level from early September is dramatic.
