Day 171: Impending Floods

The nearby town of Parkville, Missouri is getting ready for the floods as the Missouri river continues to rise. Last night we visited English Landing Park near the river, and the water was definitely up and covering at least one road so far. We weren’t the only ones out – the park was bustling with people. I’m not sure if they were all gawkers like us, or if that many people usually visit the park on a gray and windy almost-summer evening.
