Mississippi River Flood Stage Pictures, 05/06/2011

Since the near-record height and flooding of the Mississippi River is all the news these days, I figured some people might be interested in seeing some pictures. I put up a small, very basic gallery of a few photos I took of the event, along with some added commentary. These are of the river itself, from up on the Chickasaw Bluff in downtown Memphis. These were taken about four days before, and three feet below, the projected crest of the river, so I'll probably take a few more and throw them up later this week.

Feel free to view the gallery if interested.
