    We had over 6" of rain in Tamworth in 24 hours. Pretty impressive.

    I am curious if the north section of Jefferson Notch Road made it through the storm, its tends to rut up with heavy rain.

    What about Castle Ravine? Some of those crossings are supposed to be pretty difficult anyway. Is hiking there out of the question until the next drought?

    There are a lot of crossings on that route. Many are indeed quite awkward. From the looks of most of the river gauges though most of the rivers have receded to pre 9/30 water levels so I wouldn't think they'd be bad. I'd be more worried about ice on the rocks with the cold weather setting in. The headwall of the ravine is a pretty good scramble.
