When you can’t decide between a big rig and a Hummer.
Apologies to the Dead…
After a pleasant Mother’s Day dinner.
These photos are from Saturday. The water is up on sandbags now at this Mud Island school.
Fite Road near Hwy 51 in northern Shelby County.
Today, Memphis experienced one of those southern California climate days. It was almost enough to forget that the Mississippi River is 12 feet over flood stage and I-40 is closed between Brinkley and Hazen due to the rising water.
This is the last week of the semester with all of the students on campus.
Hopefully, these sandbags at the Maria Montessori School on Mud Island will protect the lower classroom, if the water rises that high.
We are now over 42′ on the Mississippi River. Flood stage is 34′. We are heading to at least 48′ and likely higher. This is the Maria Montessori School on Mud Island that is already at about 5′ from flooding a classroom.
These windows make up the north side of Barret Library at Rhodes College.
For the young, affluent professional that has everything.
The Mississippi River is rising quickly. These trees on Mud Island are actually on a hill that slopes to the river and are rarely underwater in the spring.
From hail to clear skies and a perfect day in less than 24 hours. I love Memphis!
