Watching a river run dry

Updated Jan 22, 2013

I can’t remember the last rainless day in Tuscaloosa, Ala. I’m not even sure we have had a one in 2013, although such a string seems unlikely. The Black Warrior River, which runs about a quarter mile from my office, is already above flood stage and more rain and snow is expected through Thursday.

Generally speaking, floods are bad things, but many people would rather see a flood in the Mississippi River right now than the current situation.
