After all the rain we have had since Christmas the river is still rising here and they are planning the temporary flood defences.
This was the Museum of the Gorge a couple of months ago
and this morning
The bench I was sitting on when I took the first photo (and where I often sit normally as it is a good 6 feet above the river level but very pleasant to watch the ducks and swans from)
The iron bridge then
According to the maintenance workers I was talking to this afternoon the river will rise at least another 4 feet tonight as the water makes it way down from the surrounding hills so that will flood a significant section of the town. Not me I'm glad to say but awful for those whose homes are about to go underwater
