Oh boy that flooding is a worry every year. It is too bad after all these years they couldn't come up with a solution.

That's getting pretty scary Chris.  I remember the pictures you showed us of the 2009 flood and it was awful.  I sure hope that you get a really slow melt.  I'm glad that they are preparing for it so it won't be a surprise.  Hopefully you have flood insurance just in case.

We're having flooding all around us again this spring. ??????  Wind chill in the 20's. should have a freeze over night.  Going to work I go over several little creeks... all are out of their banks.  There's one that's getting very close to a farm house. Yesterday/last night we got 3&1/2 inches... Tuesday was a inch & 1/2. 

More coming Sunday - Tuesday

Oh wow Sindee you have it cold there.  We had temps in the 60's today and 70's tomorrow.

I hope you don't get much flooding after more rain like that.
