Another water picture. I needed to get to the stairs you see to the right to get up to the Belvedere. The wall there is about four foot tall.
This is really not a big flood or anything, just high water. I think people like me, who didn't grow up on a river have no idea how powerful they can be without even trying. Some of the flood markings here are four stories tall, three blocks away, from where I'm standing the water would be eight stories over my head. It's amazing to think about.
