    We've never been in quite this drastic of a situation. Many people are without water while others such as myself have a trickle. But we are under a boil water advisory which might last for days. It's been decades since I've used an outhouse - and by the looks of it, I might wish I had one in the backyard.

    With this being a holiday weekend, all bets are off on just how long it will take to return to normal. Many of the stores are already sold out of water.

    I have to boil water to wash the dishes. Fortunately I have a few jugs of bottled water to use for drinking and cooking because I usually keep some on hand for drinking anyway. Supposedly there is sediment in the tap water now - considering the amount of flooding, river water probably got into the system. The water authority says they keep testing the water but it won't be until at least Sunday night or Monday morning before we know more. Some people traveled into New Jersey or a number of miles away here in Pennsylvania just to find bottled water. At least we have electricity!

    This afternoon I returned to the area where I took the previous river images. At least the height of the water is going down slowly.

    Although I've never seen a train on these tracks, I think a slow-moving train might make deliveries. For this image, I pulled out the flip screen on my D750, bent over holding the camera close to the ground, and used Live View to take the photo.

    Below is the Delaware River looking in the opposite direction. The water wasn't nearly as choppy today as it was the other day. When I took photos the other day, I stood on the opposite side of the bridge below. This was the side of the bridge that had the white water rapids with the fast moving pace. At least it wasn't flowing nearly that fast today.

    And this caught me by surprise. When I asked in a Facebook group, I was told the mural painting is part of a L.O.V.E is the Answer project. Someone shared a flyer with info that groups of people from around the world will unite in painting murals on September 17th in support of peace and reconciliation.

    Our water restrictions were removed today so no more having to boil water for washing dishes (used bottled water for drinking, cooking, and brushing teeth during the restrictions).

    So once again I returned to the area where I took previous photos after the flood. Today that railing along the retaining wall (levee) was no longer submerged beneath the water (see lower edge of the image). And the water looks to be at a respectable height now.

    All of these bridge photos are of the Calhoun Street Bridge. Maybe the bridge was made by The Phoenix Bridge Company. That is Trenton, New Jersey on the other end of the bridge.

    hark 2021-_dsc1078-low-res.jpg

    Standing near the bridge (Calhoun Street Bridge to my back and Trenton Makes Bridge in the distance), I took another photo of the walking path on top of the levee. Today as I walked along the top, there were a few bicyclists who rode the path. The thing is the path isn't very wide and doesn't have any railings so ya gotta watch where you put your feet!

    hark 2021-_dsc6583-low-res.jpg

    Today was also 'The Attack of the Lantern Flies.' When I walked to my car, one landed on my shoulder near my face. I jumped and almost dropped my camera. But my jumping made the lantern fly jump off and land on my back. So I put my camera in the car and grabbed something to brush it off my back while I stood near a window to see my reflection. Thank goodness it was gone. <Insert sigh of relief here>

    Then when I arrived at the bridge, I no sooner got out and started walking up the levee when one landed on my cheek. Then another one landed on my pants. And one landed on my shoes followed by a few more on my pants. There was a whole bunch of them coming at me and flying in a swarm. <The stuff nightmares are made of!>

    Another look at the sign on the bridge.

    hark 2021-_dsc6588-low-res.jpg

    This is the pedestrian walkway across the bridge. I never noticed the bells before - maybe I will ask someone about the bells' history.

    hark 2021-_dsc6590-low-res.jpg

    There is a Delaware River Port Authority Guard Station next to the bridge - usually during the day, a guard is stationed there. Looks like they might have hired a couple of new guards - one to keep watch that only cars cross while the other to watch that bicyclists walk their bikes.
