I don't know if the photo is real, but the water was that high.

That is three blocks over from my office.

Do you know anything about aquarium glass being installed on buildings in GR?

I have seen a ton of pics similar to that on Facebook. That is the biggest fish I have seen in one though.

Not into commercial building code, but it wouldn't suprise me. That retainment wall area has had special building code requirements for many, many decades.

Looks like a pike to me.



Portions of the seawall downtown are walls like that with aquarium glass in the windows.


How about this one?

The shark is a nice touch,..........but I'm afraid the biggest, meanest critter to pop up from this flood so far is a snapping turtle that washed up at the outlet of the river.

We had a flood on one of our roofs (clogged drains) years ago. We have thick glass along one wall of the roof and water came up about 14 inches onto the glass. We did not get a leak of water inside for the few hours it was that high. I'm more surprised the roof held the weight.
