As we keep a watchful eye on the river levels around here, it might be interesting to look back at the last few times it rose up to shake hands with Davenport.
Here are a some of our favorite flooding images from the west side of the city:
The river made a parking lot out of streets in 1993 . . .
. . . and lakes out of parking lots in 2001.
For two years running, gazebos were islands unto themselves . . .
. . . and playgrounds required a snorkel.
1993 might have caught us flatfooted (though the telephone poles were an inspiration to us all). . .
But by 2001, we finally got the hang of sandbags.
