we got a shite ton of rain up here the past few days, combine that with melting snow from fairly warmer than usual weather from up north and you are gonna see higher than normal river stages on the Mississippi

Just local runoff most likely, there's a stretch closed around Vicksburg because it's too low for barge traffic.

Guess I heard it wrong. Damn, that means my stash of buckets and chairs I keep in the woods by the river is about to go sailing.

I think all our rivers and creeks up here are at flood stage.

Schools here have missed about a week now because of the flooding. All that water here is headed to the Mississippi via the Holston, Clinch, Tennessee, and Cumberland Rivers.
