I’ve already grumbled about the tornado that buzzcut its way across town Friday night, but no matter how bad things get, they’re always worse somewhere else.
Here’s somewhere else:
That record goes back to 1943. I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that after ten days in or near flood, the Arkansas River is within two feet of the record for this area, or that it’s going to be well into June before it drops below flood stage.
(Track this gauge here.)
