White Mountains Flooding

This is one of the more breathtaking photos I've seen from the Irene-driven flooding in the northeast.  It was taken along Wildcat Brook in the White Mountains, NH.  Photographer unknown.

Irene provides a cruel reminder that water is a primary agent for delivering tropical cyclone impacts, be it storm surge or floods.  Perhaps we put too much emphasis sometimes on maximum sustained wind and storm category.
