High River

We got a lot of rain on Saturday. I had classes then, and my last class of the day got moved forward so that everyone could go home early. After the class ended, I walked up to Amu Plaza. At that point, the rain had stopped, but it was still light out. When I got to Kotsuki river, I did kind of a double-take, and figured I should take a photo of the river level.

The water is usually pretty shallow, but now it's high enough, and murky enough, that the walkway isn't visible. At a guess, I'd say the river is two feet higher than normal.

The next day, we were still getting a heavy drizzle, but the level had dropped to just about walkway height. We've left rainy season and are entering typhoon season, so who knows what will happen tomorrow.

You should post normal & high level pics so we can get an image of what's happening. Good stuff though
