High water in Hopedale Pond - December 12, 2008

The pond side of the dam - water in a hurry to get downstream.

Over the dam and under the shop - Freedom Street.

    The Mill River flooding onto the Draper
    parking lot and Fitzgerald Drive.

Looking upstream from the bridge off of Thwing Street.

Looking downstream

    The next five pictures were taken at Mill Street.
    It looks like the flooding will cause a delay in
    the bridge opening. I've been told, though, that
    it's still expected to open before Christmas.
