Falls Village

FALLS VILLAGE — The Great Falls on the Housatonic River in Falls Village and Salisbury were already roaring last week before the rains that came down on Tuesday morning, Sept. 18, on the edges of Hurricane Florence. 

There is an official gage that measures the height of the Housatonic River in Falls Village, below the power plant. On Tuesday at 8:15 a.m., while roads were flooding from the heavy rain, the river was at 3 feet, and was actually lower than it had been on Saturday, Sept. 15, when the water was at 3.39 feet.

FALLS VILLAGE — Yan Tutschka was a little surprised to have a visitor on a rainy Monday at Chubby Bunny Farm, at Undermountain and Cobble roads.
He had spent the morning picking vegetables and was relaxing in front of his seasonal home — a modest RV trailer downfield a ways from the barn.
Tutschka is one of four full-time apprentices at Chubby Bunny Farm, a community supported agriculture farm (or CSA) run by Dan and Tracy Hayhurst.
It is Tutschka’s third year working on farms, and his first at Chubby Bunny.
