I'm sure anyone living in the US, has heard about the terrible flooding in the Midwest. Both sides of our family live in Iowa (opposite sides of the state) & luckily they didn't suffer any damage to homes, etc. My in-laws live in Davenport, which the Mississippi River, runs right next too. This river tends to flood parts of Davenport about every other year & this year was no different. My mother in-law sent me these photos below. They do a great job at reflecting the havoc the river caused.
In the first photo, the building closest to you, is called the Levve Inn. When my dh & I lived there, you could walk up to the window & order fast food. It's been flooded so many times, I'm not sure if it's even being used anymore. What's interesting is on the outside walls of the building, they have markers of past floods, I don't think this one was as tall as the '93 flood, but it was close.
I LOVE this last photo with the pedestrian crossing sign (someone should paint waders on the guy).
I promise to post some of the pieces that I've been working on either tomorrow or the next. Would have had one for you today, but, one of the journals I was working on, needed 2 separate fronts & backs & I miscalculated on the size & didn't make it big enough, so had to start all over & since I'm making it from dyed paper towels, there are a few drying steps before the finished piece.
