Flooding, Flooding everywhere (and what a mess it makes)

The Amtrak route from Albany to Montreal has resumed today after the railroad passenger line discontinued it yesterday due to flooding north of Whitehall.
And, as predicted by Waterford Harbormaster Dick Hurst, the canal system is not opening in the Capital District area (along the Champlain and Erie) for at least a couple of weeks also due to flooding.
I would give you the weather forecast predictions and say whether they might affect flooding, but...I tend not to listen to weather forecasts. It's really hard to avoid them too, considering they make up about 1/3 of a TV news broadcast and then they have them on the 9s on YNN and on the 8s on the radio.
So, I'll make my own will be partly cloudy this weekend with a chance of showers and sunshine. Vague enough?
