I'll let the pics speak for now....

We are in the midst of the 500 year flood here in my hometown. We are still dry here in the house except for the basement and hoping that the darn river stays on the OTHER SIDE of the levy....





My bil is not soo lucky...water is all around his house and we still dont know if it has crested all the way that it will crest..




Not really nervous at this point that our house will be overtaken by water....unless the levy breaks and Lord knows we have seen that happen before, just not here. Will be anxiously awaiting that water to recede....that is after all the impending storms get by producing isolated amts up to 5 MORE INCHES....Seriously I think we have had enough!!

ugh, girl - I feel for you. wanted to stop by and say 'hi' - I'm in Des Moines and we've been lucky so far (at least at our house... just a little water in the basement) but here's to hoping for no more rain. (As it's raining right now... yikes.)

We've been having rain but nothing like what you all are getting. I hope it stops for you.
