A Few Flood Images

There are a number of better ones in the QC Times, but here are a few that I've taken in the last few days.

This one was taken from the Centennial Bridge looking down at the baseball park, Modern Woodmen Park (I have zero clues as to what a Modern Woodman is. Perhaps it is one that uses a laser instead of an ax.)

This one is on the Illinois side of the bike path right between Rock Island and Moline. If one clicks on the image and looks closely, you can see a blue heron that is in the water where the bike path runs. I think it is enjoying the water more than most folks here are.

Here is a view from the Government Bridge. The water on the left side of the image is the Mississippi River. The water on the right side is where some railroad tracks are that run parallel to the bike path. The water here is something on the order of 10 feet deep. You can also see that they have the roller dam all the way open.
