I guess we are staying at goose pond probably a couple of days until the river opens back up. Fuel is only 3.69 for diesel.

David, looks like Goose Pond is a good place to hold up. The river at Chattanooga went above flood stage about noon today. I walked out on the Walnut Street Bridge to check things out. Current is running 4 to 5 knots. There was one trawler at the transient dock. Both walk ways to the floating dock are under water. The river looks to have risen 5-6' in the last 24 hours. The current is moving so fast that water is piling up behind the bridge columns. That seldom happens. I don't know if power has been shut off to the docks, but I assume it has.

Unusual times indeed. The last time I remember this was in '67 and '72. Just hunker down and relax. There are a couple of marinas at Scottsboro. You might try to give them a call.
