Mighty Susquehanna
And the dam that (tries to) control it

The upstream dam …

turns on and off throughout the day.

Looking upstream through the fog and snow to the Conowingo Dam

But it’s never enough to completely shut the river off. The Susquehanna Flats are wide. About a mile to be exact. This photo is taken about 2 miles downstream of the Conowingo Dam that was completed in 1928, coincidently the same year as the Tamiami Trai. So who would have ever thought: a thousand miles apart, the headwaters to Chesapeake Bay and the Everglades got cut off on the exact same year.
