Big River Risin'

Yesterday we headed to Utica to scoop up Mee Maw & Paw Paw so we could go check out the flood in Vicksburg. Paw Paw was a great tour guide, as he knows all the backroads and good high spots in town. This flood is devasting, and although it was hard to guage just how high the water was in many spots, there were several places along the river where the damage was very evident. This is just one of the many towns that has been so effected by the mighty Mississippi- my heart just goes out to everyone who has been impacted- especially all of the farmers who have worked so hard on planting their crops this year.
