I know I'm far far away from you cats, but I've been wondering the same thing too !!
I mean, we ain't getting any good water flows out here in CT either, but that's due to two years now of very little precipitation.
Even that massive snow fall we had did nothing to bring the water flows up, and with no rain expected anytime soon this will be yet another year I don't run the Naugatuck River race......
