Spring Flooding

This is the park behind the Credit Union - not a lake, although it appears to be one. Last year in June the water was 20 feet deep and we had to evacuate. Everyone is anxious as the water is rising...

  1. Hopefully you won't have to evacuate this year!!
    Great photo.

  2. Wow, is this run-off from somewhere? Nice shot.

  3. Beautiful photo! I hope you don't need to evacuate again...

    Do you frame and hang your photographs? If not, you should!

  4. I frame several - however, running out of wall space. I also sell one every now and then.

    There is a creek that runs through the park and the water comes from all of the snow melt. The city fathers (years ago) built a series of flood gates to control the flooding and as a result the water "pools" in the park as it slowly drains out to the Cedar River. Last year there was so much water that everything backed up.
