Ice jams and winter weather returning!

After a week off and enjoying the mild readings, I was torn between washing the car or not. It really needs it but another storm is coming and there is still water standing in the streets. I guess waiting won out!

On the way to work I snapped pictures of the Missouri River near the Milwaukee Depot and east of that area. A Flood Warning remains in effect until tomorrow afternoon. No one knows just when this ice jam will dislodge and what it might due to the Missouri downstream. Use caution when around the river and the River’s Edge Trail. You can see from the pictures that the ice has pushed up onto parts of the trail!

Get ready for snow and much colder weather by Wednesday and into the weekend to welcome the New Year!


Little change in the ice jams

Parts of the River's Edge Trail dry

Don't get too close!

Some parts of the trail covered in water

Another Winter Storm coming!

Best bet for moisture
