    Little river was beautiful this afternoon. It looks like it's about to reverse though. No boil and the river still rising

    We can always dive it from the river!

    Kelly I remember standing there in 1998 at the water line looking DOWN at the vent pipe on the bath house. It was my first time there so I didn't understand the magnitude. My shocked instructor was quickly trying to think of plan B for our cavern course! And this could be worse!

    I remember flood of 1998 very well. That is when the "desperate diver" picture was shot by Steve Auer, of John Orlowski walking in waist deep water on the road down from Dive Outpost. If you remember seeing the bathhouse in 1998, this flood will be approx. 3 ft higher.

    The flood of 1998 was pretty epic. There were alligators crossing 441 in Paynes Prairie.

    I heard on the radio this morning that the Santa Fe has flooded out CR 236 and CR 18 just west of Worthington Springs. The river is coming up...

    We are already in excess of 10' above flood stage at my home in High Springs. Water has crossed the point it reached in 2012 for the trop storm Debbie flood.

    I estimate I have another 4/5' of rise before it starts to flood my house.

    They just posted on FB the following:
    "Due to flood conditions, we will be closed through Tuesday, September 19th. We plan to reopen as soon as conditions improve. We will post updates on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and website"

    Yes 3 feet higher is disturbing. I'm very concerned for those in N Florida now.

    Yes indeed as one very large gator actually stopped us northbound on the prairie as we were driving to the hospital around 4 am for my daughter to be born. Made it there with 45 minutes to spare and the nurses at the hospital told others about our gator story after we told them. Still a favorite family story of ours.
