The Raging Mississippi River - March 18, 2008

The Raging Mississippi River - March 18, 2008

With the melting of the snow in the northern states, the River has risen quite a lot in the last few days and is already seeping through the locks (on right) of the Bonnet Carre' Spillway. The normal River bank is at the tree line. A barge going down River was having an easy time but a barge going upriver was barely moving against the current.

Those fingers of light reaching down from the clouds are just spectacular. And what a great setting for them. Wonderful shot!

Really like the rays of light - very nice.

I hope this doesn't mean bad things (flooding, etc.) for your area. You've dealt with enough already!

Yes Ma am. It is mighty powerful.

Neat image, the sunshine through the clouds is perfect.

Crazy times for the weatherman.

Arkansas and W TN are adding to that tonight. We should add some more after tomorrows storms.

Fantastic shot, looks like tonight's rains will swell the river even more. Guess we'll be opening the Bonne Carre again this year.

Very nice capture, the tree line!!!!! Wow. Our papers just posted a warning if it warms to quickly.

This is a great image. Everything works about this image. I love the sunrays coming though the clouds.

Wonderful shot. The fence and the light through the clouds really captures the tension today.
