Mighty MO

The eastern side of the Missouri River.  Those trees use to be above the bank of the river and are now part of the river.  This was taken from my car window as I waited to cross the bridge.  The bridge has been shut down to one lane due to bridge repairs.   If the river gets above the embankment, prime farmland will be in ruin.
As I travel slowly over the Missouri River, taken from my car.  Those trees on the left are the same ones from above photo.
Taken from the western bank looking at same trees in first two photos.

The first photo had me in shock! What? The mighty Missouri a mere trickle, lol?!

If I knew how to swim I would be in the water.

The world's climate certainly seems to be messed up right now! Incredible shots.

That does look bad! I used to live near the Thames where fields regularly flooded and I saw rowing boats on the water where it was a field a few days earlier!

So far, it looks like it will hold, but the peak is still upstream of you, isn't it?
