This should be a stage, playground, parking lot THEN the river.
|Do you see the playground? This is also where we lay around and hang out to watch the 4th of July fireworks and enjoy the concerts in the park during the summer.|
|Gross. Please don't go swimming in this. Our new city hall had a couple feet of poo in their basement because the sewer system just couldn't handle the water.|
|Thankfully, not our house. BUT people were sandbagging all over town.|
|I've hid Easter eggs in this park before. There is NOT a lake or pond in it.|
|This was at the beginning of all of this. This is the park that we take Gus to play fetch in. Again, there isn't a lake or pond anywhere near it!|
In town (Salem) where I work, things were not looking better. Here are a couple of pictures from friends, facebook etc.
These people had to be rescued out of a flooded park on a raft.
Thankfully, the rivers have crested and right now it is only a light rain. Our house has been pretty dry, and we are both so thankful that we didn't buy one of the homes we were looking at on the creek.
