This picture was taken a day or two after the river crested and started going down and before the great April snow storm arrived.
On Shepard road looking toward the Robert Street bridge. This was taken on Sunday when the river crested. It did not break any records.
If no one photographs it did the flood ever happen?
Flooding along the river is common in the spring. It is a little higher than usual this year. When the water goes down it leaves a mess behind.
This was taken at about an hour after the Mississippi river crested on June 26th. The water is receding but it will be awhile before this path is again above water. Floods leave a kind of muddy sludge on everything so even after the water is gone the path isn’t really useable.
The river should crest again this week and then it will give us back out park land and Warner road. The local police are keeping people back from the flood making it hard to get photographs but I don’t give up easily.
