Cedar Rapids

Okay, we are nuts.   We wanted to see the new Cardigan Welsh Corgis puppies just north of Cedar Rapids. So we set out, and decided to snake northeast and try to avoid I-80.  So we went towards Cedar Rapids on US 30.  Of course, once we got near the Cedar River, the police just started to close the road behind us.   We ended up going up I-380 and went over the interstate bridge which is the only bridge open over the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids.

So traffic slowed down.  I held the camera out the window and up. The water was incredible.  The Cedar is normally a tame river.  It had spread out over a mile south of down town.  And they are five days from crest.  So here are some of the pictures I got.

  1. Incredible. Amazing. I am from Cedar Falls, but now in Arizona. I haven’t seen that much water in a long time. We haven’t had any rain to speak of. Thanks for posting. I just started on WordPress and saw your blog on the homepage. Jcs2
