While far worse things were happening at home and abroad, over the past several days the northeastern U.S. was battered by a classic nor'easter storm system. New York City got an unheard-of eight inches of rain in a single day. The Thomaston Dam is a flood-control project in western Connecticut, built to prevent a recurrance of deadly flooding of the Naugatuck River that took place in 1955.
Normally the dam rises above an empty basin of dirt and scrub trees with a meandering narrow stream running through. Tuesday, the effect of the nor'easter was clear to see.
