More Scenes from the Life of Noah

Now that the sky’s blue again, I was able to venture outside and tour the neighborhood. Here’s some street-level shots of what may be the worst flood in this city’s history. As of 1 p.m., we were officially (National Weather Service) .05 feet short of the record. That’s a little over one-half an inch from the 1913 record flood. Our local measuring shows it a bit less, but what’s a few inches when the river’s seven feet above flood stage?

As for me, my office will be closed again tomorrow, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they close Friday as well. Lots of folks were hit by this, so it’s not just having the water go down in the streets and drying out the lobby. I suspect the weeks to come will be a lot of hard work for a lot of folks.
