I was worried about the dirt road being washed out from the rains. I have 4 wheel drive, but I still don't like to muck about. Usually after snow melt and heavy rains, the hill at the start of the road is all rocky & uneven. I was delighted to find that someone had leveled it out recently.
But then I got to the bottom of the road and discovered I couldn't go any further. Not because of rocks or mud, but because of a big hole in the road. I believe there's a pipe under the road that carries a stream under the road there, and the flooding must've busted it and the road caved in there.
And then it was snowing in South Abington Township (near Clarks Summit) as I went over the mountain on my way back to Scranton on Route 307. As soon as I started coming down the Morgan Highway it turned to a downpour of rain.
By this evening they were predicting 32 feet.
As of midnight the river level in Wilkes-Barre is at 30.76 feet.
Update: River level during the night is hovering around 30.73 feet & 30.83 feet.
