Bridge over High Waters

Nearing flood stage after seven inches of rain since Sunday,
 the Alabama River in Selma made the railroad bridge appear
 a bit short by Wednesday. Even after four days 
of nearly constant rain, the skies still threatened. 

Click HERE to see how high the bridge stands when the river level is normal.

Great photo. I miss seeing bridges in my area but there's the Coronado Bay Bridge in San Diego. Thanks for today's visit. Nice to meet you!

Yep, we're getting that same rain here in Fort Myers Florida! Although it seems to be clearing up some this afternoon. Very nice photo of the bridge and the grayish skys too!

It's sure been a wet winter.

Water is such a powerful force. I always get a sinking feeling when I see a photo like this. If the river keeps rising, there's nothing in the world that is going to be able to stop the damage it will do.

What a stark contrast between the two photos. Too bad you can't share some of your rain with us.

That's quite a contrast between the two photos; the Mississippi in Minnesota would enjoy more moisture
