    Well, you can say that again! Did you take the picture and where is it at? I remember back in the ’90’s when Des Moines had their terrible floods. We were driving to K.C. MO and on I-35 right in town the water was up to the highway and the ball fields weren’t there and all you could see was the top of the restrooms. That was something else.

      OH yes, I took the picture. This is a shot of downtown Davenport, Iowa. We get a flood like this every few years. 😦

    SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL GARY. BUT WHERE ARE THE STREETS. WHICH IS THIS PLACE.
    THIS IS A COMMON SIGHT HERE IN RAINY SEASONS. ONCE DURING A FLASH FLOOD I WOKE UP TO FIND THAT MY COT WAS SURROUNDED BY WATER.
    A LOVELY CAPTION.

      Thank you LVISS! This is a shot of downtown Davenport, Iowa. The downtown area floods like this every few years. 😦

    we had the same scene down here that year. Here’s to hoping even though that’s a cool picture we don’t have to see it again.

    The ones that have boats I’m sure had fun! Water can do so much damage though! Great shot!

      Thanks Nikki! Water from the Mississippi River coming over it’s banks and into downtown has ruined MANY businesses over the years. 😦

        yep we’ve had the same thing down here. Is this the one from 2 years ago that you took the picture of?

    Whoa! That’s trippy!

    Great picture. We get that all the time here in Houston! It seems like all it takes is 4 to 5 inches and we flood!

    I love this one Gary! It looks like it should be on a postcard! Great job! 🙂

      LOL yeah a postcard like that would be in lots of tourists! They’d have to come by boat! 🙂
