The Connecticut River in Haddam, by the swing bridge. Without a drone or a flyover, I cannot explain how immense this field of ice is. It extends for miles up the river. And it is an alien scene. Huge, jagged chunks of ice as far as the eye can see. The ice jam is now being broken up by two Coast Guard cutters. It will take them several days to get to the swing bridge, where this all starts. It is incredible to take in. Get your ass down there to check it out, and if you have kids, take them as well! This is what people around here are calling a once-in-a-lifetime event. Luckily the damage to property has not been too severe. And the cutters should be able to complete their work before more precipitation is forecasted. . . .
