From my old Trucker days - I must have crossed the Mississippi at Memphis a hundred times but today was a first. I have never seen the river so swollen. What is normally a 3/4 mile crossing of water and then several miles of dry flood plain - today was a good 5 miles of angry muddy water.
Crossing into Arkansas
On the Arkansas side - the flooded land went on for a good 4 miles or more
Sorry if the pictures aren't perfect but it's hard to steer, shoot pictures, answer emails from work, and eat lunch at the same time.
Crossing the eastern half of Arkansas it seems like the whole damn state is under water. Every river was swollen miles beyond their normal banks. No wonder Bill & Hillary bought a house in NY.
