Stricker's Pond overflows

Most flooded vehicles likely to be total losses, experts say.  (, 8/23/2018)
Car engines’ sensitivity to water and the prevalence of computers and electronics in virtually every aspect of vehicle operation make water damage particularly difficult, if not impossible, to remediate, said Paul Flogel, director of the automotive technician program at Madison Area Technical College. 
Mark Follmann, a claims manager at American Family Insurance, said most of the vehicles that have flood damage will be considered total losses because of the lasting nature of flood damage. The good news, if there is any: Flood damage in vehicles is covered through comprehensive insurance plans.

Now:  August 23, 2018

Longmeadow Road is open to traffic.

I couldn't get near this sign on Tuesday.

This section of a bike/pedestrian pass is usable, if mud-crusted.  My wife and I tested it out.

Red, yellow and blue arrows indicate respective locations of Thursday's photos.
