    Dam, (pun fully intended), that looks like some high water. Hope people are managing.

    Oh!
    Where would that river normally be? Do we even see the line where its normal banks are?

    I was just watching on CNN about the levee breaking in Des Moines and the flooding in the Midwest. Terrible news. Hope your part of town is dry

    Here is a view to the left of the previous one. The river is normaly a good third mile away from this park. In the previous pic, the land was dry on the right side of the levie. That is no longer the case....The system failed along a flow active area and a large neighborhood got about 6 feet. It's good to live high on the hill, not high on the hog.
