Ohio River Swelling its Banks!

Ohio River Swelling its Banks!

The River is rising fast. The lamp post in the picture below is where
I usually stand for taking pictures of the bridge. There is a bench sitting
next to the Lamp Post (completley summerged)!!!
I'll be out of town for a week. My brother, Sam has finally gotten scheduled
for the Operating Room and he is set to have his kidney taken out in the morning
(Tuesday, the 12). Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Carol

This picture shows what the river looks like when it is not high; this lamppost is below water now.
