I went back to Lindsay Park today to see how things have changed since last weekend. Though still high, the river has dropped 5 or 6 feet and is flowing within its banks. There was only minor damage to the park from the flooding -- a few small sinkholes, an overturned picnic table. On the other hand, Fish Creek Park was badly damaged, according to a news report I saw. Footbridges and pathways were washed away and the river has changed its course. They estimate it will cost $5 to 10 million to clean up.

In preparation for my vacation, I bought myself some cargo-pant style shorts yesterday, and I really like them. Very comfortable. I may never wear anything else!
