I made another trip to the Freight Street bridge this morning to see what the Naugatuck River is doing. The water has risen higher and is moving very rapidly.
The river is overflowing its banks, but since it is channeled between high cement walls along this section, the flooding is contained.
I was reminded that if you visit a river early enough in the day, you get to see some of the wildlife, like the Great Blue Heron staring at me from the opposite side of the river.
I guess he didn't like my camera, because he flew away, up the river and out of sight.
