Road Closed

On Sunday, I posted about a "Road Closed" sign that I found on my travels a few days ago. At that time, the road was still clear but they were pumping water from one side of the levy to the other to try and keep the levy from busting. Here's what the road looks like today. It's definitely under water now. We had 2.09 inches of rain from all those storms last night. This is the actual amount but if you listen to all the people in town, depending on where you live, you got from 2 to 3 1/2 inches of rain. The river is now at 20.3 feet at 2:06 pm today. The expected forecast is 26.4 feet at 1 a.m. Thursday. This is about 4 feet lower than the expected levels that were posted this morning. Flood Stage is 19 feet for our town. The expected stage levels change from hour to hour so I'll be watching to see what tomorrow's totals will be.
