MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH) -- The storm that pushed through our state caused lots of flooding in some spots. In downtown Mystic a major roadway was washed out making it difficult for folks to get around.
When Wayne Richard got into his Barber Shop this morning he had 15 messages waiting for him. The heavy rains left customers wondering if the Mystic barber was washed up for the day.
"I can't tell if I actually got water in here or not. Looks dry now. Yeah yeah this is the nature of the beast being down here by the water," said Richard of Wayne's Barber Shop.
The Mystic River like many other waterways overflowed its banks causing the places which usually flood to flood again. Although most weren't expecting it with this storm which started as snow.
"Not letting a little caution tape stop you," asked News 8's Tina Detelj.
"Oh definitely not, the roads are clear enough right here," said Chris Olson of Mystic.
Although Olson does have a pretty big truck to plow through most water over these roads, not everyone is as successful as these folks.
"Made it through no trouble. One one car we saw do it ended up stalling out on us," Olson said.
Juniper Point in Groton was also underwater for most of the morning. One viewer sent in pictures saying "We did not know we would be having another 100 year flood...or is it a 100 day flood?"
It's easy to see where the water was. Debris was left behind on the street and in basements.
Shane Carrier is used to it.
"It gets a little muddy at times, sandy and stuff. You just hope you can save what you can at times. That's what happens during a flood," Carrier of Groton said.
Keeping everything raised above where the water usually comes in...another way of life along the shoreline.
