Thursday Arch Series

Arch 2011-04-24 2

This was taken last Sunday, when the Mississippi was at the very edge of flood. It's rained much of this week - all day yesterday - and my best guess is that the river is 1 or 1.5 m higher now. I'll have a look on Saturday.

Severe tornadoes have raged across the central and southern US for several days. When I was driving home from work last night, I heard a news bulletin that a large tornado had just passed through Birmingham, Alabama. That's the home of one of our favorite colleagues, Virginia of Birmingham Daily Photo. I sent her an email asking if she was okay, not knowing if she had electricity. She wrote back quickly and said that she was; the storm had hit across town . Whew. Check her blog today. She may have a tornado picture.

Downtown St. Louis 365 is looking for love in all the wrong places.

Where Is The Love

Crazy spring weather. Until now, we had summer.

Thanks B for checking on me. We are fortunate but there is so much devastation and loss of lives around the state, not only here in Birmingham.

Cool shot with that high 'tide'.
