No Worse for Wear

Before chasing ATV riding monkeys through Ashley Monday morning, I had a little time to play with my camera along the Susquehanna River.

As you can see, this photo was taken near Millennium Circle and the Luzerne County Courthouse.  It was my first time, on the river's edge, on the east side, since the September flooding.

The things you see here were designed to be under water from time to time.  Still, I was amazed by the lack of damage.  There is a lot of mud to be hosed away, and a few stones to be re-set.  Otherwise, the area is in remarkable shape.  A gallon of water weighs more than eight pounds.  Multiply that by trillions, and that's what you had flowing through here back in September.

It looks like a trouble free spring, summer, and fall, in the park are ahead.
