Summer, Autumn, Winter and Rock River Flooding

Sure, technically the Rock River isn’t above flood stage right now at its measuring station in Moline, Illinois, but it’s been close enough for long enough this spring.

Fun fact: six of this location’s ten highest recorded floods have occurred in the past 20 years, and the top 12 floods at this location all have happened since 1970 (also, fourteen of the top twenty, by my rough count).

I stopped by Harold’s Landing on my lunch hour and took a few pictures.
