Downtown CR from August 2006

Downtown CR: Dry vs. Wet

I was fortunate to have snapped a picture on a flight back to Cedar Rapids in August 2006. I went up last Friday to get a similar picture during the floods. It really gives a perspective of how high the water got.

I'm a CR resident and have clicked on all the hundreds of photos in the last week, trying to wrap my brain around what is happening. These two are the BEST I have found. Thank you!
