It's flat there--as I write I'm back in Maine, escaped from Ohio for a third summer straight--and the prairie rivers move sluggish and brown. In Maine you pick out the height of flood on, say, the Sandy River by the damage to tree trunks and the spookily exact plane made by ice and roaring current tearing off the lowest branches of riverside trees. In Columbus you pick out the height of flood on the Olentangy or Scioto Rivers by the consistent plane attained by 10,000 pieces of garbage, mostly plastic bags, caught in tree Always in the months after I moved, I was looking for a place to run my dogs, Wally and Desmond, who are Maine country dogs used to the unlimited woods. We started on a subsidiary athletic field at Ohio State--long, kick-out-the-jams gallops across mowed acres, lots of barking and rumbling--then leashes to cross Olentangy Boulevard and a parking lot, so to the Olentangy River (my students call it the Old
