We woke Monday morning to a full rain gauge (2.04 inch) and a rapidly rising river. The kids wanted to go for a boat ride on Sunday and we pulled it up the bank and flipped it over. The river level was actually going down so I thought it was high enough. With all the rain, the river came up over two feet overnight and when I checked things out in the morning, the duck boat was gone! Luckily it only floated across to the snow/ice (see top photo). Alex and I took the canoe over and reclaimed our duck boat (even the oars were still under the boat).
