Flood from Ida #3

By handlerstudio  
Since I did not get to photograph the flood waters...i am "reduced" to reporting on the extent of the flooding from "forensic" evidence. These plastic bags clearly were floating in the flooded Schuylkill this.. and versions, they area about 8' over the bike path level...and that is about 10' over the normal (shown here) river level.

I would like to thank Ian (dales) belatedly for your UA.

I will be away at a craft show this weekend (I set up on Wednesday north of NYC, drove home for Yom Kippur and taking my wife to chemo today) and leave about 6 or so tomorrow morning) I'll be back on EPZ early next week.

Ida grazed us - lots of rain. Larry missed us but clobbered Newfoundland. It's been a wild hurricane season so far.
(To answer your question, I'm looking at the end of October to make a run for it but that will depend on what I get done here. I have a cottage to rent when it gets too cold for the rig.)

The trash hanging high up in the trees tell the whole story!

I hate plastic litter ... as the micro beads
Invade every square foot of planet earth ... hope your show goes well.
Best regards
