River on the Rise

We've had plenty of rain over the last few weeks and it has certainly filled up the river.  Local forecasts have been carrying flood warnings for the surrounding areas and it's interesting to see the changes from day to day on the river.  The flood walls are still open, but you can't drive down by the river launch area right now - much of that is under water at this point.  I'm curious to know how they determine when to close up the flood walls.

I don't seem to have the same view from a summer snapshot for comparison, but I think it's pretty self-explanatory here.  These are the same picnic tables I ate lunch on during summer & fall.  Yipes!

 Hopefully we'll get to see some sunshine around here soon!
