But Spring might be here!
Yesterday was in the 60s, sunny, clear, and generally beautiful. Today was a few degrees cooler, but overcast and windy -- but still Spring-like! I'm trying not to get too excited!
The combination of 60" of snow and a little rain recently means that the rivers are high. We haven't had flooding in Iowa City, but the Iowa River is definitely higher. The river banks through campus are steep, so it's not so obvious there, but north of campus, where the river runs through City Park, the banks are very shallow. Even in normal circumstances, the river and the banks look "flat," but now, the river is definitely out of its banks.
