Hadley Bike Ride



I had a spin through Hadley on Monday. Rt 47 has a bridge that’s out and I can’t drive to work that way anymore. But the views are beautiful: all farms and barns and the banks of the Connecticut River. I stopped for a little lesson on living in the flood plain. With all the rain dumped on us courtesy of Hanna, it’s important to note that floods of significance DO happen, even here. This sign nicely illustrates how the river waters invaded this resident’s living room. The disadvantages of a water view…

Otherwise, I wanted to post these barn photos. They are the same barn, just deeper into the season. A little tribute to Heather’s photographic passion.
