Grand Rapids is sinking!

So for those of you who don't live in Grand Rapids, or Michigan for the matter, our city is flooding! The Grand River is at a record high level for the past few days. People are literally lining up along the side to watch it and take pictures. Alex happens to find the fact that the Titanic exhibit is at our Public Museum right now is hilarious/ironic. What if the Titanic sank twice?! So I luckily had the day off yesterday so I got a new library book, a nice almond milk latte from Madcap, and took some photos of the rising river. Take a look for yourself:


Downtown looks all cute and rainy. 


Until you reach the river, and it's SO high. 
Here's a comparison photo that Laura took a little while back:


Crazy, huh? Here are a few more photos too of all the craziness.




That's all for now! Please keep the families affected by the flood in your thoughts and prayers. 

xoxo, K
