Rain, Rain, Go Away

Flooding expected along the Pequabuck

The rains which started late Sunday will continue through this afternoon, flooding streams and basements in Forestville. Unlike yesterday, heavy downpours are expected today with high winds. Great. Better get out the Wet Vacs Forestville.


Forestville Police Baffled

Police artist rendering

Forestville police commented today that despite having detailed information regarding the appearance of the gunmen involved in last week’s supermarket robbery, they still have no leads.  They do admit that this may have something to do with the fact that the police sketch artist is a cubist. 

So, to help move the case forward they have had the sketch of the man redone by a nonrepresentational surrealist.

Vaughn Raughn self portrait

Tragedy struck Forestville’s art community today when local artist Vaughn Raughn accidentally wedged his hand in a can of paint and drowned.  Police at the scene remarked how tastefully he had died, creating wonderful arcing streaks of Prussian blue across the blank canvas of his taupe floor.  Funny but true.

Rising Waters along the Pequabuck

The Pequabuck River earlier today

Due to two days of torrential rains, Forestville experienced rising waters along the banks of the Pequabuck River.  The raging waters did not crest in the center of the village, much to the disappointment of several onlookers, but the waters rose enough for water officials to advise the citizenry to stay away from the river.
