Bike-commute day 22—to work

Finally the Mad River Bikeway is passable without flooding, though about half of the way's width was still flooded near the confluence with the Great Miami River. I suspect the GMR will be flooded through another two or three days, or longer if it rains again this week.

Note about the illustration
The line drawings were published online as a video slideshow and captured by me during the playback. The video provides stills from The Art of Frank Patterson by Horace F. Button, which was published 1952 by Temple Press, Ltd.
