    and here is a pretty one..

    And prior to the rain this river was 2.2ft (perfect for floating), at this point in the pic it was up to 20ft.

    Arkansas is a beautiful state. I enjoyed my visit to Hot Springs last year. I can't believe that last picture. A 20 foot rise!

    jnette, I was just thinking that second and third picture reminds me of the NC mountains.

    We live more in the north central part of the state, so it wasn't nearly that bad for us, but my heart goes out to those in the middle of this. Some of my favorite places in the state are in the northern areas, and it's a shame to see this. We got a considerable amount, but things are drying out nicely. DH wasn't too happy that he was having to recut the grass so soon, though! :chuckle As we progress through the summer, though, it'll likely turn on us and we'll be needing the rain again... such is the weather in Arkansas. If you don't like it, hang around, it'll chance in a second... In all seriousness, my heart goes out to the mother who's two babies were swept out of the car in the flood waters.

    When it rains, there is nothing gentle about it in that part of the country. I don't miss the weather there. But the pix are amazing.
