Seems to be a mix up on the date. August 22nd is Wednesday. The 1.30"+ of rain we've had in last 12 hours most likely hasn't helped this bridge any more either.

That's what I get for not checking the calendar whenever someone sends me a date, Erik! I sent out a quick e-mail to the first selectman to confirm whether it's Wednesday or Thursday and will let you know more as soon as I hear back.
