Mississippi River

And a River Runs through it

Mississippi River at Upper Landing Park

I took this one on Saturday March 20, 2010. The River is at about 14 feet which is flood stage and will crest in a couple of days. We are waiting for about 6 more feet of water. I am sure I will take a few more shots before it is over. I live close by this park but up on the bluff not on the flood plain.

Watching the River Rise

Mississippi River St. Paul, MN 2010

The river tends to rise every spring but this year it will be higher than average. Today some roads will be closed and this park is already closed. I will try to get some more photos. I have to laugh, the local news media films while it is still dark out so all we see on the news are some shadows and railings and a well lit news caster.
