Default A Frozen Grand River (56K will have to wait a brief moment.)

I had class in downtown Grand Rapids today. I was at the GVSU Eberhard Center, and I noticed that the Grand River that runs though the city was raviged by snow and ice. These pics show the fury of mother nature in Michigan during the winter.












Supposedly in some residential areas near this river, homes were destroyed from the river overflowing then freezing.

Here is a pic of what it looked like in the fall:

I thought GR was at risk of flooding (downtown at least) last week, not sure if thats still a real threat.
