How High's the Water Mama!

I do believe I brought the rain forest home with me from the cruise! It's brings back memories of that old song, "How High's the Water Mama!"

They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I'll show you how high it's gotten around our part of the country. The picture right below is what the dam at Tishomingo looked like yesterday and the one on the left is what it looks like normally. There are 50 steps down to the sand bar and the dam itself is probably 30-50 feet from top to bottom. Those are the tops of trees you are seeing out past the water.

On the other side of town there is a bridge and a little foot bridge off to the side that leads over to a lovely little park where they have family reunions and picnics, it looks like this...
To the left is the foot bridge but it's under water. The road to the left is underwater, also, and you can see about how high it is if you look at that stop sign. To the left of the stop sign is a car that is sitting in water up to the window. Folks probably parked there and the next morning they were late to work because they had to get out the fishing boat. Speaking of fishing...when the water gets high the catfish will bite. This fellow was catching supper from off the Washita River Bridge going south from Tishomingo to Madill...the bridge is closed and with the rain we got today, it could easily be covered and no one will be permitted to walk out on it to fish!
The Washita River looked like this yesterday...

How high's the water, mama! I'd say it's gone above five feet high and risin'!
