The weather continues to be a problem here in Iowa. We are having record flooding and people and businesses are being evacuated from downtown areas and those closest to the river. M and I spent much of yesterday downtown Cedar Falls sandbagging and I am getting ready to head down again this morning. So far the levee is holding and downtown Cedar Falls is dry. But that could change with more storms on the way. Many other cities near us are already under water - Waterloo; Waverly; Cedar Rapids; Laporte City to just name a few. This is a photo taken at a major intersection coming into the Cedar Falls area. Many many roads are closed and it's tricky just getting around town. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes. I'll write more later. Off to sandbag.....
A neighbor just emailed to say we made the front page of CNN.com
Until Next Time
