Heavy rain in Vermont makes the water flow over the falls

Water flows over Thundering Falls in Killington, Vermont.

The big storm that rolled up the East Coast hit Vermont pretty hard today. Lots of rain and it has been raining all week. There was lots of high streams and flooding and the wind and rain took a rather hard toll on the fall foliage. Since it wasn’t going to be a good day to photograph leaves, I decided to go to a waterfalls near Killington. It is a 150-foot drop, I’ve read that it is the eight largest falls in Vermont. At this time of year, Thundering Falls usually has only a trickle of water coming over it. I knew that with all the rain, it would be running strong and I sure was right. It was truly thundering.
