Wading Through the Flooding, and Blowing Off Steam


I have been obsessed with coverage of the flooding in Iowa, and every morning I look at photos of the damage and read news stories about the entire area and about my alma mater. Most of the images are very upsetting, and most of the news is devastating. I wanted to share this photo because it is not only upsetting, but witty and ironic, and I wanted to share this bit of information because it demonstrates a certain resilience and understated humor that reassures me that Iowa City will somehow manage to recover from this.


So is that a street wading sign?

I wouldn't wade in it, not when it's that deep.... but I guess it's warning any cars trying to drive through the deluge to watch out for waders.
