5:00 Update: Tropical Storm Irene at Little Pond
Irene hit us with plenty of rain, and that's about it. The Mt. Mica station has recorded a whopping 3.9 inches today, and that has the Little Androscoggin River at a record high of 667 cubic feet of water per second- the mean output on this day is a mere 32 cfs, which means there is almost 21 times as much water flowing in the river than normal.
Our pressure is still decreasing, at 29.26 inches. As the storm passes us by, will we drop below 29? We'll see. But all in all, Irene packed much less of a punch than I was expecting.
