Why they call it the Riverway

The start of the Riverway this afternoon, along the floody Muddy near Park Drive, where a BWSC crew was trying to unclog a pipe that brings the river under the road to the Fens.

Upstream, on the Brookline side of the Big Muddy:

USGS data show the Muddy's almost at flood stage (that thin red line at the very top of the chart):

Swamps have their ways of reinventing themselves ... truth in advertizing, though!

You should post that one to Wunderground.

Or at least it seemed that way from Readville:

If (when?) the Muddy hits 15 feet, the D branch of the Green Line will have to be shut-down between Reservoir and Kenmore so the portal at Fenway can be blocked to prevent the subway from flooding (like it did in 1996, and 1962 before that)

Latest USGS data show it's now higher than the 15-foot mark, which means we've got an official flood on our hands.

I wonder what those portal doors slamming shut are like - anything like the giant door at the Civil Defense emergency-management bunker in Framingham that slams shut in the event of nuclear war?

Here - I bet that bubbling stuff in the foreground is an overflowing sewer, yum.

Alas, that of my condo unit.

I'm sure many neighbors are experiencing the same.

Yes. Now I just hope I can find a sump pump tomorrow. Discovered the water after everything closed.

Our little electric pump could've done the job...if only the bleepin' thing worked.

Instead, it was the old-fashioned style of water removal.

As it will be tomorrow a.m.
