Flooding at Fairport State Park, Muscatine, Iowa

Muscatine's Fairport State Park has 42 campsites.  The widening Mississippi River has covered 8 of them and is closing in on one more at the moment.    The sites with larger numbers are the ones already -- or about to be -- in trouble.  Luckily for us we're in campsite #6 although we were originally scheduled for #41. 

About 45 minutes ago, Jim went kayaking in what was the campground.  Then he took off upstream on the Mississippi. A few photos are at the bottom of this post.

The sign peeking up from the water reads "No Parking Anytime." (Click on any of these photos to make them larger.)
Water is brushing the rear tires of this motorhome;  if the rig was hooked up to electricity, the power cord would be in the water.  When I took this photo the campers were putting away chairs and other outside items.
