I have own that brown house at the end of Whipple Road by the Shawsheen for many years and lived there before moving to Texas. It can be a wonderful place to live: ice skating on the river and feeding ducks and geese in winter, canoeing and fishing for trout, bass and perch in summer, just kicking back and enjoying the sound of the water running over the rocky bottom. But incremental development upstream without on-site detention of the increased run-off it causes has dramatically increased the incidence of flooding. I've never seen 3 floods in a month's time. Billerica, Tewksbury and Wilmington should get together to develop a regional storm water management plan. Water is a valuable asset when properly managed. Remember that we have seasonal water shortages. We should be doing whatever we can to capture water to recharge our aquifers instead of letting it flood down river to the ocean, causing property damage in its wake.

Good points. I bet living there was great once, and I totally agree we need to find ways to capture and manage this water.
How are you liking Texas?

You and your Platanos, shut the hell up! You're obviously trying to stir things up on every topic. Just eat your plantains and shut it if you have nothing to bring to the topic moron....

The Concord River is raging, and someone has time to get furious at a poor woman saying platanos are her comfort food. Her comment doesn't make much sense, but perhaps it does to her. No reason to call her a moron. Someone needs a nap.

I like eating a nice big Porterhouse steak and lobster when it rains out. I know I would never be able to afford to do that if I worked for a living, but, now that the nice people that work at the welfare dept showed me how to apply and helped me with the paperwork, I can afford it whenever I want. Enjoy your plantains, Latinlady.

Wow! It sounds like the Concord River isn't the only thing that is raging!!! You sound like a very angry individual. You should seek out therapy. Have a nice day!
