    With the snow melt and recent heavy rains, Winhall Brook is experiencing flooding. Not as bad as after the Irene storm but still signifigant. The water will be receded by opening day and they expect no delays. Hybrid hollow is underwater but the Picnic Pavilion is not. Below are some photos from their FB page...
    1st one is the hollow looking towards bathroom and pavillion

    These are the leantos headed towards my site at the end. Fridays meet and greets are held just past last roof line.

    One of the rangers took photos while they were getting the picnic tables from the sites and checking lean-tos for floaters

    Always late to the party, I just booked the last site in the hollow, N33. Hope someone wasn’t eyeing that up. Now I have all summer to work on my power situation or buy a new camper!

    I suppose so, but probably by myself and haven’t cracked it open yet so have no idea if I have power, a tribe of rats... who knows.

    I might just tow and then be prepared to get a hotel room if I have to. Or bring a tent just in case. I really need to get away.

    Glad to see we didn't scare you off last year Donna! Just be warned, you are right next to Dave now.
