Floating away

RISING WATERS:  The mill at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
  • War Eagle Mill
  • RISING WATERS: The mill at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
The waters continue to rise at War Eagle Mill. This photo was taken by the folks who run the place around eight this morning. Since then, the waters of the War Eagle River have continued to rise — though, understandably, no one's there to shoot the flooding now.

I wonder how this is going to affect the bi-annual War Eagle Arts & Crafts Fair, just a week and a half from now.

STILL THERE:  But waters inside the mill
If you're in need of War Eagle Mill goods, though, you are still in luck. The distribution center for the mill is uphill and is still accepting orders at (479) 789-2146. Updates will be forthcoming at the mill's website and on the mill's Facebook page.

UPDATE: News from War Eagle Mill this morning — and a new photograph.

The folks at the mill dropped a line out on their Facebook this morning with the photo to the left.

8am, 4/26/11. We think it's peaked for now...maybe 3 to 4 feet inside the Mill. Fortunately production continues at our granary.

The War Eagle Mill Craft Fair scheduled for May 6-8? Still on.

UPDATE: As of Tuesday afternoon, the waters are receding.

FINAL UPDATE: As of Friday morning, the Mill and the Bean Palace Restaurant have reopened. How's that for fast?
