KERSPLASH! Cars and trucks found the going rough on East Street during last weekend’s nor’easter. Flooding occurred between St. Irene church and Cutters Ridge Road when Ministerial Brook overflowed. (Photo by Ellen Huber)

LUCKY DUCKS. It was great weather this weekend – if you were a duck. The whole animal enclosure at Kimball’s became a duck pond. (Photo by Marjorie Johnson)

CAN YOU CANOE IN YOUR BACKYARD? Some people in Carlisle can. Here Bill Hamilton (right) takes his daughter Maya and friend Mandy Finizio and her dog Snickers for a ride past the swingset that is usually on dry ground. (Photo by Jane Hamilton)
