Once in a while mother nature has to remind us who's really in charge. In a repeat of last year's storm, we got several inches of rain last night, and a lot of roads are flooded and washed out. Of course Locust Street near St. Ambrose was flooded and closed, but also Eastern and 29th. I think when the floodwaters start hitting the bridge the city starts worrying about the structural integrity and closes Eastern, because it didn't look like any water was actually over Eastern.Here's the view looking northeast towards Brady Street and Arby's from the Sancho's parking lot.
Hopefully the newly laid asphalt on the bike path east of Eastern survived the flood waters. I doubt this piece of submerged equipment near Jersey Ridge is going to be in good shape when crews get back to work tomorrow.
