    DAMN!! Where we these taken? I'm in Peoria and I was planning to take a ride to a couple of the bridges tomorrow and Monday, if I have the time from battling the flood in my basement. It is sad to see these sink, but, I am not really surprised. They are predicting a record breaking crest. It will not be a pretty site along the rive over the next week.

    The river went dry because of global warming. Now it's overflowing because of global warming. Next thing you know it will be back to normal because of global warming. Dang that pesky carbon.

    This was at Marsielles lock yesterday 4 barges sunk, 1 barge against the dam. And to top it off their blocking the flow so that upper pool is coming up faster. The rumor is they might cause the town to get flooded out.

    yup that drought really hurt bad. Now they are dealing with an early thaw coupled with lots of rain in the last week. The end is coming!
