In Hardin County, IL, the Ohio River is rising like the Kraken, determined to suck this beautiful area down to the depths of the river bed. The beautiful and historic Rose Hotel in Elizabethtown is the home of the lovely gazebo which, normally, perches high above the Ohio River and furnishes a breath-taking view of the area. Many beautiful weddings have been held here. The Rosiclare Park is underwater. The picnic shelters are all underwater except for the very tops. The playground equipment is all but invisible except for the very top of the highest slide. The restrooms are totally underwater; not even the roofs showing. But, better the park is under these tons of water than our beautiful little town. Our levy is holding strong.
