July 2023 rain - Northern tier Between Vermont and Maine
« on: July 10, 2023, 04:23:56 pm »
The rain these last few days has in New England states is causing quite a bit of disruption.

I am stuck in Woodstock VT ,due to the storms,  and was going to hit Kancamagus hwy in NH and then join up with the Remaining  Northern Tier section 11, going west to east. Quite a few road closures,  mud slides and flooding not being reflected in the online reports. Am contemplating abandoning section 11 and riding south of the white mountains in NH towards Portland ME

Also low end motels (< $150) appear to not have vacancies.

If you are about to embark on section 11 in New England states, it is very wet and IMO, online weather reporting is not sufficiently reflective of the real conditions.

1000-year storm event being reported on television that hit NY and VT.  Bad conditions.  kd-ca's advice about checking out conditions before leaving is spot on.
