Water Water Everywhere

A few weeks ago Hubby and I drove around town to look at other watery places. Once section of our Centennial Trail that we try to walk once a year, had water crossing the road entering some parking lots of apartment buildings.

It has been a historic runoff this spring, hasn't been like this for 20 years. Around my hometown, smaller lakes are filling for the first time in years. There's a floating restaurant across the state line that has to boat people in because their dock and parking lot is flooded. Isn't that something? A floating restaurant that's having water problems.

This will definitely be a spring to remember and I'm glad we got out to see a little of it before I start complaining about the heat this summer.

The river should be way back behind the trees


Ironic much?

The sidewalk ends here

A duck swimming across the road

There IS a road under there

Wanna go downstairs?



From the bridge

One of upper damns on the river. Lots of debris, I read some of it was a broken up dock

Every night the national news has a feature story on severe weather and its aftermath from somewhere in the country.

I know it's not funny, but I couldn't help smiling at your description of the floating restaurant's water problem.

We are dealing with the same kind of problems. It's not going to get any better soon either. Take care.
