After the Rain the Road and Bridge Closings

Hurricane Irene has come and gone.  Actually, it was just a tropical storm when it hit the Pocono Mountains.  While the winds were not as strong as forecast, the rains were heavy and the ground was saturated, so the winds were still strong enough to bring down trees and power lines all over, and the rain was heavy enough to cause widespread flooding of streams and small rivers.  Scenes such as the one pictured here with signs announcing a bridge or road closed were quite common today.
