No Crossing for George today

With all the rain and snow melt over the past two weeks, the Delaware River is running high.  This morning it crested about 15', which is still 4' below flood stage.  It's a good thing that George Washington did not have to cross the river or he would have ended up south of Philadelphia.  A few photos from this morning.

The boats are still in the river.

A tree which is normally on dry ground.

The river is really rolling.

Sun on the bow.

It should be interesting as we are supposed to get another 2 inches of rain on Thursday.  Enjoy.
