The Mighty Mississippi

Luckily, we didn't get the rain that had been forecast over the weekend. I'm afraid to think what the river would look like if we had considering it looked like this today.

I'm glad we cut that break since we're now going into yet another round of rainy days, if the forecast is to be believed.

The only way you can get down Lenore K. Sullivan Blvd. right now is by boat!

And if that additional rain happens, we might not see Lewis & Clark for a while. In fact, you can't see much of them right now! What? You can't see them.

Look closer. Just to the right of the cluster of highway signs ...

Yep. Hat in hand. That's all you can see of the famous duo.
Even their boat isn't doing them much good.

Those two seem to be under water more than they are out of the water! Maybe they should move them!

Yeah, what Monkey Girl said! :)

You are both right! I've often wondered what possessed them to put that d*mn statue practically in the middle of the river anyway.

We had the most severe flooding Montgomery has seen in probably forever last week. Our backyard was a lake, but fortunately we did not have flooding. Our church's first floor, however, was under water as were many people around here. It's crazy what so much rain in such a short amount of time can do!
