Going Up

.
The Mississippi is rising again. On Saturday it covered Lenore Sullivan Boulevard and the first couple of steps to up to the Arch. The dark area on the water is the shadow of the Arch itself.

This is small change, though, by historical standards. The sign high up the post in the second picture is hard to read here but the red stripe is the high water mark of the great flood of 1993. Long way to go.

Hope it doesn't ever reach that height again. Scary.

Good grief. That WAS high.

Send it over here. 30° and I'm melting. Thinking of moving to Iceland if only there were less volcanoes there.

So how much did you have to pay that cute little girl to sit there? :)

In your honour and in the honour of wall the Photographers, I published an ilustration.

I forget how much it rains in the midwest until I see photos like this. That little girl doesn't seem the least bit afraid.

Nice and especially so with the little girl. Boy you guys get a lot of flooding!
