Aftermath from Mill Creek. Pringle Park.
Here are a few before and after pics. Hope you enjoy viewing these from a nice dry place, like a cafe with coffee in hand, or a bar stool, or the laundromat, or the city bus…not the city bus.
Before: Cute little bridge at Pringle Park, surrounded by ugly swells.
Aftermath: Shifted, tilted, no longer all that cute.
Behold the power of water.
Before: Someone forgot to shut the door. As Zane would say, “Hate that when that happens.”
Aftermath: Looks fine on the outside…
…Not so much on the inside. You can even make out the creeks level.
Aftermath: Good thing they’re bolted. Freshly emerged.
Rocky pathway. There were rocks everywhere. Stream bed found a new bed.
Dying. Lots of dying fish. Not dead, dying. They were still flopping around. Mallards were having a feeding frenzy.
Aftermath: Battered trunks.
Before: Row your boat, follow the arrows.
Aftermath: Sign is ready to come down. The ground was so soft.
Well, this should keep the City Of Salem busy.
Before: A practical side eddy.
Aftermath: New marker. The old guy in the background was a little useless this time around.
Before: Riffles and runs.
Aftermath: Ripped the soil clean away, leaving a nice crater.
Little wet inside.
Before: Nice wide pool.
Aftermath: Fun times lay ahead. The parking garage, which was a full blown pool not even 24 hours earlier.
And here is number 76…
Just love it. It’ll take a long while before all of this is cleaned up. Good thing this wasn’t in the spring, when Salem is in full bloom. Not the best for attracting tourists.
