This is another picture from downtown. The whiteish bulding in the background with the small dark awning is called Discount Liquor. I took the Egyptian and Mikey in there and they were in awe. Barstow St. passes across the right of the picture. The Lee S. Dreyfus State Office Building is immediately to the right. In the middle of this picture, directly behind the woman, there is a dam. Yeah, you read that correctly. A dam. It's about 3 or 4 feet high. There used to be a mill on it when the town was founded. Behind the dam is an area of still water where they do ski shows in the summer and you can rent paddle boats. There is a riverwalk area around the dam. All of that is under water. You can't even tell there is a structure there. Amazing. I have never seen the water that high, not even back in the 90s when the Mississippi had those huge floods. That's messed up. If you are dry, be greateful. If not, be smart. Remember that that water is dirty. And never, ever walk or drive through a flooded street. you probably shouldn't even boat through it. Listen to local authorities and be smart and safe. Whatever you do don't be like this guy:
That is not a recipe for a successful day.
