High Water

It's high, but not as high as it was in 1993. Back then, the water submerged all of Serpentine Wall and pretty much most of the flagpole portions seen in this photo. The concession stands were under water. Mehring Way and Pete Rose Way were under water. The Lytle garage was at that time a surface parking lot and I remember seeing the gate sticking out of the water.

And even that doesn't come close to the Mother Flooder of 1937 which turned all the downtown streets into canals.

And now another rainstorm has begun just as I am typing this...

I remember when the big snow melted at the end of 2004, the tops of those concrete posts were just sticking out of the water.
