Most of the snow got rained-away, creating flooding in all the usual spots. At one point on 109, a small car could have been stuck in a Texas-style washout!

The blacktop on 109 and 171 are badly eroded on their edges and undercut by a foot or two in places. There is a lot of gravel from the swales that got washed across the roads and washed into many brooks and marshes from Wolfeboro to Meredith.

In some places the roads department is putting in rip-rap rock—something that would have alleviated this seasonal occurrence in years past.
