I grew up eating globs of cookie dough from Dear Hearts while throwing stones off of the bridge and into the Pawtuxet River. We have had some impressive weather lately, and when I heard that the Pawtuxet was reaching record flood stages, I had to grab my camera and catch some of history being made. The first photos are from Pawtuxet Village (right near our rehearsal dinner spot!), where the Pawtuxet meets Narragansett Bay. The second are from a spot on Elmwood ave where the bridge is closed. Pardon my shaky hands. Pouring rain, slow shutter speed, plus holding an umbrella with one hand, does not for good pictures make!
