    Water Everywhere

    River cities brace for high water - Omaha.com

    The Corps of Engineers has boosted its upstream releases because a tremendous amount of water has begun flowing into reservoirs because of heavy rains and above-normal snowpack. Earlier this month, snowpack in the mountains that feed the river peaked at about 140 percent of normal.
    All that water flushing down the river for months will put stress on flood defenses such as levees, floodgates, pumps and relief valves.
    Communities at greatest risk are from Plattsmouth, Neb., southward to just north of Kansas City, Mo., according to the Corps of Engineers. One reason for that is the additional water flowing into the Missouri from the Platte and Nishnabotna Rivers.

    May be a record runoff for the Missouri River Basin. It is close to being the most in 60 years.

    I have lived by within 5 miles of the North branch of the West Nishnabotna where in meets up with the main branch of the West Nishnabotna and the east branch of the West Nishnabotna. Almost 100 years ago the river was dredged from Irwin south to the Missouri it was reduced to a drainage ditch with no levees or dikes. The water level is about 15 lower than the surrounding ground, the trees that line the river are of course, mostly about a hundred years old. It offers little gravel or sandy areas we live in mud country over here. It is a fun place to canoe or kayak if you stay in your vessel.

    Vessel is a fun word too.

    "I like to float my vessel down the Nishnabotna and Wapsipinicon Rivers. Be sure to bring suntan lotion and lip balm (another fun word) or else you may need some ointment (final fun word)."
