Bryan and I headed down to the river tonight to get a look at the river. We don't recommend this... or at least not going to Mud Island. The police were blocking one lane to go over the bridge to deter river spectators. Traffic on Island Driver was also much slower than normal.
I got a couple of shots though.
This is where you turn off Island Drive to park along the park. Its totally blocked off now.
Looking the other direction.
For reference, this picture was taken 3 weeks ago.
We'd all be under water today if we were standing where we were on that day.
This is normally a beautiful park to walk and run along the river.
Later we drove to Riverside to get a look at the water there. Its not too far away from coming onto the road.
