The River Has Crested - 4/22/13

Today's visit downtown was with my work mates, one with a borrowed camera from me. Naturally, that resulted in me appearing in a few photos :-)
 The good news is that the water is receding but it has a long way to go. 
Here you can see the high water mark at the Ford Museum.
River front hotels are still pumping,
  and Grand Rapids is still gawking at the dramatic views.
News people are running stories on water quality,
 aquarium quality windows are holding (pics by Mary Alice Walker),
 men at work are checking the bridges and flood walls,
no one in Grand Rapids follows instructions,
 and we're all watching...(sandbags & water almost meet).
