Though it hasn't rained a drop of late, the Assabet River and its tributaries enjoyed a little boost from our recent snowmelt. The photo above shows the combined flow from Nashoba and Fort Pond brooks as it passes under Commonwealth Avenue in West Concord. This is some of the same water I snowshoed on last month alongside Fort Pond Brook.
The additional water allowed upriver travel on the Assabet up to and into the mill race at Damondale...

The morning's gusty winds had diminished by early afternoon on this last day of Eastern Standard Time. Bring on those 7pm sunsets!
