It's a mess in the South Delta. That is all.

I hear its gonna exceed the 1979 record.....................going to 98.0ft with the existing water on the ground ?????
Is that still correct?
Im speaking of the Little Sunflower (landside gage).
I remember that in 79.................it was ugly. I remember the only thing sticking out of the water on Dummyline Road was the Little Sunflower River Bridge at the boat ramp at Delta National......

Thats a lot of displaced game. I guess the deer can search out high ground.
Lot of hunting camps at or just barely above 98.0 ft.
My buddy has a camp on dummyline, the mound he built is at 97.5 ft and camp on conventional foundation.
His camp will be the only thing sticking out. He will probably have deer or hogs on his porch.

That's Yazoo Basin but its still bad. From what im hearing around Sunflower,Greenwood,Itta Bena, Morgan City area, i bet Yazoo River is jumping back across to the Sunflower Basin at Itta Bena, Berclair and going west to Quiver River.

Hwy 16 just west of wolf lake was being closed on Friday on my way home. Have to find a new way to get to work, though there's not much can be done with this high water.

Drove through Delta National on the way to Rolling Fork on Friday morning and saw some boys working hard with a backhoe to build a levee around their camp. Hope they were successful.

With the rain due this week, who knows what could happen next.
