Which by the way is flooding, no, no, don't worry i am up on the plains- and with all the locks and dams it is not a devastating thing as it used to be, but rather a slow and steady thing and takes awhile to get down to us and then slowly move on. I showed the pic of the picnic table in the water a week ago and that was the start of it i guess, lots of rain in the north then and it takes a week to get here, and now it is clear everywhere and the water is coming, so flood some streets and parks, but not so badly as the rains stopped up North. it is interesting. In the paper here they have the tonnage shipped on the river every week, and it is ALOT you see the barges in the river and backed up waiting to get thru the locks, it is just a way of life here, and pretty cool to see too!!!
