Barton Springs Pool Flooding

When I visited Austin, Texas regularly, I would often stop by Barton Springs pool to do some open water swimming. One length was about 220 yards.

This is what it looks like in normal conditions: note the concrete pool deck and wall prior to the grass:

This is what it looked like during the recent flooding:

There are more photos from the flood here.

I am very familiar with many of these places (I played football in one of the stadiums shown).
