Water water everywhere

Our month of rain in January has given way to a rain soaked February, and we are starting to see some flooding on the road leading in to the office. Of course, in the big picture, this is nothing.

The most destructive river flood in history was the 1927 Mississippi River flood. The sheer size of it is boggling. It stretched across Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi and covered 26,000 square miles. In Vicksburg MS, the river was 80 miles wide!

That makes the little scene from above almost laughable. Well, laughable, but still annoying. This is what greeted me on my way in to work.
