Flood Stage Question
Starting tomorrow, there will be the perfect 'travel by water' weather for at least a week straight.
Problem: Most of the rivers, locks and dams, etc are or will be 4 feet or more above flood stage due to the storms of a few days ago. Not only will I be fighting river currents, but the floating logs will be out again.
The water level went from a normal level of 13', to above flood stage at 34' in just a few days.
I know this is a record 'crazy weather' year but I don't know what normal is for the Tenn-Tom.
Is this the norm for the Tenn-Tom, like up and down all year?
Should I wait it out till end of next week when water might be down again?
Or does this go on all summer long?
I don't know whether to delay my trip, AGAIN, or just take my chances.
