Sounds like the mighty Mississippi water level is dropping reducing barge traffic and impacting fresh water. Going to be a impact on the refineries, fisheries and will make the future hurricanes worse if the marsh grass is impacted. Seems like one thing after another in the last few years. I remember reading not long ago of a goofy plan to try to pump water out of the Mighty Miss to the drought areas of the west, dream on.

I can tell you that up here near the headwaters we just don't have any water to send you. It is dry as heck here.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Mississippi as low as I ever seen here. Took grandson fishing 2 weeks in a row. Kind of worried about lower unit but since I fished river for years and worked river till I retired was not real worried. Saw structure I never seen before. He caught 1 channel cat in two trips and I caught 0. First time he got bragging rights on Pop Pop. He still rubbing it in. Priceless

Global warming continues to have an impact.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I've been hearing the Mississippi was low. Am curious to know if any old steamboat wrecks or other pieces of history are coming out of the water.

Hank Jr. was right all along.
First verse of “Country Boy can Survive”:

The preacher man says it's the end of time
And the Mississippi River, she's a-goin' dry
The interest is up and the stock market's down
And you only get mugged if you go downtown

Barges are pushing about 2/3ds the normal grain down and there will be smaller loads of fertilizer, steel etc. going north. This will add a lot of additional cost to moving grain through the Gulf but exports are pretty slow right now.
A lot of wheat is going through the Pacific Northwest. Corn is the biggest issue for the Mississippi due to the huge volume. Even if we get normal moisture for a year or so, the river system could be low for a lot longer.
The Ohio carries the most water of the 3 big rivers and there has been more moisture in that watershed then either the MS or MO.

Its been dry up in the head waters area, what do you expect.

I live near Lake Michigan, the water level is up then down and its always global warming or climate change or whatever the latest name is.
But it changes due to rain fall and snow melt in its basin.

Much ado about nothing, it'll go back up when there is heavier rains and a big snow melt in the north.

here is a graph of lake Michigan levels thru the years, a 6ft variance, thats alot of water over a lake as large as that.

If the compensation gates where to be removed in ssm lake superior would drop 15 feet because of the locks we have created. So don't worry the army core of engineers is looking out for us lol.

Wrecks are showing, and sea water is backing up the river from the gulf.
