Is the River Going Up?

Today the future does not look too bad.  The river is supposed to go up to 7 feet and then down just a bit.  That is out about 7 days.   We are going to start packing some boxes tomorrow, but we have to wonder if it is not all in vain.  Well, at least we will sort some stuff out.   A local reporter is doing his blog on the possibility of floods.  He is checking out the rivers upstream from our spot and the Quad Cities.  It would seem there is a lot of snow pack and ice near the tri state border (Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa), but it drops off further north.  Tomorrow it should be almost 50 degrees here.  Here is his blog:

Slow melts are good.  It is a big river and can take a lot.
