mississippi flood

Just a friendly request: could those folks upstream of the Quad Cities please refrain from flushing. We don't need more water. The river hit a new record level today. Its been forty days of over severe flood stage, also a record by twice. The only good thing I can report is my boat is inside and at least 20 feet over water level. It looks like at least a month till the water drops to a level that will allow splash time. Could be worse boats stored outside my home port marina in Rock Island IL are floating of their cribbing. How high's the water mama? 5 feet high and rising. -Johnny Cash

Lesson from Hurricane Irma, Drop the anchor even if you're on jack stands... It may help you find your boat later.

I ended up going back home after 3 days. The river came up to 24.7í the road to marina is closed at 23.7í so I left before that happened. Hopefully the end of June the marina will be back in service and boating season will get started on the upper Mississippi.
