Sunday’s dawn was a little easier to anticipate although it did take time building as many do. This vantage point, Pelham Lookout, which I visit frequently is along U.S. Route 202 in Pelham and affords a narrow but nice view of the southern end of the reservoir…just a wedge of the whole which is just under 25,000 acres. The total watershed, which includes many brooks and a few rivers is over 80,000 acres. It’s a good sized basin for collection and a lot of water, 412 billion gallons when at capacity, behind the two dams.
What we see here is just a drop in the Quabbin’s bucket.
There won’t be a post tomorrow of a sunrise from today. We are in the process of a day and a half of rain but so far it is staying above freezing so still no new ice.
