The first of the month brought rain and snow melt which caused the river to rise but luckily it fell just short of the flood stage sparing many that live nearby it's banks.
Now, a week and a half later it's happening all over again.
Several days of rainfall that ended with snowfall last night and flurries today have brought the mighty Ohio up again. The river is expected to crest tomorrow at 41.8 feet which is more than 4 1/2 feet above flood stage.
We were out and about this morning so we thought we'd ride by the river to see the sights.
The water was near the road and spilling over in a few places. The street crews were placing barriers up and those living close by were packing items and moving them to higher ground.
We've gone fishing before on the other side of those bridges ~ but not today!
I'd love to be able to get some more pictures tomorrow as the water rises even more but I doubt that will happen. Most of the streets near the river have been blocked off as of this evening for safety.
Well, I'm off to bed now.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Mine is going to be relaxing. My birthday is on Sunday and I'm planning on spending my weekend doing absolutely nothing.
Nothing that is that I don't want to do! (cooking, cleaning, dishes, etc.)
