Podshow Number 33 - An Obvious Theme Show

Howdy from wet New England!
Today's show comes from the porta-setup as the official O.R. studios are still out of commission. Forgive the audio (speech) quality...the music sounds great, nonetheless! Cleanup has begun, however, and I hope to be dried out and back to normal soon.
OK...enough excuses... here is the lineup for the very obvious theme of today's show:

"From Beneath the Water's Edge" by Under Feather
"Flood" by Jeff Eaton
"Looks Like Water" by Man Bites Dog
"Walk on Water" by Velvet Chain
"Underwater" by Sam Boxleitner
"Underwater Place" by Blood Ruby
"Watershed" by Rotoscope

Thanks for subscribing, and don't forget to cruise over to the O.R. Frappr map and join. There is a link over on the right. I'd love to see where you're from. Thanks to the Podsafe Music Network. All of today's music can be found there; please check it out.

The Milton Dam - Water Rising

The dam is still holding, but the water level is near to reaching the road, and rushing hard. Now, if the rain would just stop.
Stay tuned!

Video - Raging River and Sinkholes

OK, this is a first for me. Hope it works.
I took a short drive today to assess what's going on in the area. Took a little bit of video for you. The first clip is the dam in my (very, very small) town. The second is a nice sinkhole that I'm sure is gonna end up going all the way across the road before much longer.
I'm hoping that if you click on the title of this post, it will grab the wmv file for you. It's about 3 1/2 minutes long and 13 or so megs.

Again, a sun dance would be much appreciated!

O.R. Mini Report - Make it Stop Raining!!

Howdy O.R. Listeners,
Just a quick message regarding the soggy state of things up this way. Heavy and consistent rains have caused a lot of issues here in the New England area. The picture above is the little dam that holds back the river here in my town. Apparently, it's the newest and strongest along the route that the river takes. If this one goes, there will be big problems further downriver, and it's likely the others will fail, flooding out thousands of people.
We are thankful that we have been spared much of the damage that many of our neighbors have experienced, nonetheless, we are scrambling around trying to keep the water at a manageable level. Luckily, we still have power to keep the pumps going. Hope that doesn't change!
Rivers are cresting higher than they have since 1938, dams are being monitored for potential breach or breakage, and more than 600 roads have reported damage, with over 250 closed in sections because they are impassable. And there's no end in sight for the rain, which keeps on coming. Frankly, it just don't look good.
If you are interested in checking out what's going on, you can see video and reports at either WMUR (NH news) or WMTW (ME news - our close neighbors).
Thanks again for subscribing, and please do a sun dance for us here... we need it badly!
