Flooding

Queen Elizabeth Park on Saturday

the fencing is tall fencing around a tennis court

the water has risen more than a foot since then

normally, the river isn’t even visible from this vantage point

::

“A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt

(Except that the water is cold in this situation.)

::

Our city has a valley and in that valley is a river and in that river is more water than anyone has ever seen.

Things are ok. Most of the city isn’t in the valley, and they took flood preparations very seriously this year. People are helping each other. And marveling at the force of water.

More info if you’re curious.
