    was my first thought about the flooding, the second was that maybe it would level out the Mississippi for a bit so that transport up and down could normalize. I hope that in the end this is more beneficial than detrimental for all of you.

      water, the Corps of Engineers will regulate the flow to make the channel navigable.  It only has to be 9ft.  This should make that better.  If we can get occasional, gentle rains from now on, the drought will also be alleviated.  The soakers we had last week let too much rain run off, rather than soaking in, hence the flood.  :-(
