05.11.15 Hey Paw, Look! The River is Rising!

happy mondayThe blog post below was written Sunday evening.  Between then and now the river has risen an additional 10 feet causing the river to overflow the banks in some parts of the RV park.  Not where we are yet, but it is quite a sight.  We are packing up, unplugging and getting ready to pull out of here if it rises any higher.  I’ll be working on a blog post showing the pictures and videos of how it is now.

Monday, May 11, 2015 – It has been raining here quite often and heavy.  But that’s okay, we just change our plans accordingly. In between down pours, we decided to explore the river running through the resort from down by and in the water!  Some of these pictures may look like previous pictures of the resort but all of these were from about 15 feet below along the shoreline and in the water that is the White River running through the park.

This one is from yesterday and the next is from this morning.

Same location, much more water and you don’t see the rocks.

Tornadoes also seem to be quite active right now and we’re really hoping we don’t have a “What in the world were we thinking about coming here” with either a tornado or a flash flood.  At least there are at least a dozen more feet for the river to rise.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
