Monday at 1:15 PM the river was at 11.4 feet. Flood stage is 15.0 feet. The prediction is the river will hit flood stage sometime Thursday morning.
We're in no danger. We had a survey done when we were in the process of closing on this house, and the house stands officially 8 feet above the 100 year flood plain. I was standing at house level on Monday evening when I took this shot, so you can see it would take a flood of geological proportions to reach us.
And of course this happens every Spring. The difference for us is that we now have a ringside seat. So we'll watch and learn more about the yearly cycle of this historic river. I contrasted the photos I took on Monday evening with some I took last November right after we had moved in. Yep. It's up, alright.
