wildcardjack: How does one "close" a river?

Is that how floods happen?

Uchiha_Cycliste: Isn't it weird how the weather conditions are behaving in such a way that we are bouncing back and forth from one extreme (no water) to the other (too much water)? And we are cycling through them so quickly. I wish there was some one who would have warned us this could happen.

Nostradamus...Al Gore...Art Bell?

I live in a place where the weather seems to always be off kilter, so I take it in stride.

Looking back through history, the weather has always been in a state of flux...our current abilities to monitor and disseminate that information makes things appear extreme, but in the grand scheme of things, its just nature doing what nature does.  An ice age scenario or the weather patterns the planet experienced during the age of the dinosaurs will or will not happen...eventually.

It was closed in 1861. It was opened in 1863.

Sure, why not.

Water traffic can't get through, that's all.   Gonna be a financial hit for some, but probably not as bad as last year when the river was too low for many boats to even pass through certain areas.
