Watching the river from Smuelkoffs Dock

Downtown CR June 11th 2008

As the day wore on, I would make the one block journey on my breaks from work to see the rivers progress, and progress it did make. Having lived through the 1993 flood living just next to the bridge on the corner of Wilder Dr and Bertram Rd, I know the feeling of watching the river creep every higher until it finally gets to you. These pictures are just what I observed while wandering around in the SE side of CR today.
