My son and I drove around north of Memphis and in the Shelby Forest area today and it was water, water, everywhere. You couldn't get to the Mississippi River through the park, due to high water in one of the streams. Lots of salamanders, small snakes, leeches, frogs, and small aquatic creatures were swimming in the road.
The first two shots were taken off of Benjestown Road in the Loosahatchie bottoms. One of the locals stopped to chat and said that they were expecting another 11 feet of water and that several houses would be affected along the road.
The last three were taken Sunday at Tom Sawyer RV Park, as it succumbed to the rising waters.
