    I would assume if it gets real bad you all have to go on the anti-looting and get me a boat team.

    i think the primary concern now, aside from downtown, is sewers & drainage backing up. the river is supposd to peak mid-week (today/tomorrow), but who knows. they might as well throw bones or read entrails..

    pic from last week. i was on this trail during mtb training the week before. there is a large roundabout-type vehicle turnaround, and there are 6-8 parking spots underwater here. last i checked (friday?), this spot had completely dried out and was once again fully accessable.
    Stay safe...hope the worst of it is over.
