Drought in Nebraska

I took this photo while crossing the NE-50 bridge over the Platte River near Louisville, NE.  Usually the water fills at least half the channel, but now it's barely more than a creek.  The Platte is not a very deep river, flood stage is only 9 feet, but it's currently at less than 15 inches.  There is actually grass growing out where the river should be.



The river usually looks like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Platte_River.jpg  (Taken from just a few miles upstream)

LiveJournal really messed up the gallery.  It's a royal pain in the ass to upload and post images now.  Clicky on any of these to see the full image.

Storms in the distance, and the water tower that was recently erected nearby.
