In Dallas, It Rained

2015.05.25
pixel
From the new Sylvan St. bridge looking north. The ramp to the left leads to the river bottom. It was closed today because a right turn off of it would leave you pretty wet.
pixel
You could however walk down the ramp to the water's edge.

Nice wide walkway by the road.

Looking south from the same bridge you see downtown Dallas partially obscured by clouds. Roughly right in the center of the trees is a place called Trammel Park.
pixel
Couldn't see the ramp but the water was pretty obvious.

North from just north of the Continental walk bridge.
pixel
The Continental walk bridge, the MHH bridge, and downtown. Reunion tower is off to the right.

Slightly different angle.

The Continental walk bridge with the MHH bridge and railroad trestle in the back.

Facing east from south of the Commerce Street bridge. Reunion tower to the right, left at the end of the bridge, the jail, and downtown in the middle.

Raw power looking south with I-30 in the background.

Someone left the crane out in the rain, and I don't think that I can take it. Only an oldie will know where that comes from so I'll tell the youngsters. It's a take off from MacArthur Park back in the 70's.

It's rained almost daily for the last three weeks. Some days a little less than an inch and some days up to almost 4 inches. The water you see is between the levies that protect about 26 miles of Dallas from flooding. This happens every four or five years to somewhere near this depth and almost yearly to lesser depths. Here's the interesting part. The city in all it's infinite wisdom wants to build a toll road down in the bottom of this mess along with a large park. Now I don't understand what part of the word "flood" do they not understand.

biskayne I have seen it on tv. I see that our politicians aren't the only wise! It's sad because there have been some people dead. They are consequences of the cimate change.
