i'm supposed to be doing schoolwork with bubba right now. i know i haven't posted in FOREVER! life has been so crazy busy lately. i just haven't had time. ah well. will get to it. or not.
but i had to quick post a link to this article. even though we don't live in Fargo, ND, we are also dealing with similar flood issues right here in our own backyard--literally. the local river also runs north into canada and although the city is probably going to be just fine, we happen to live north of town and all that water has nowhere to go. it gets pushed out into the fields (overland flooding) and even though we're over a mile from the river, the water is creeping ever closer to my home. of course, a big part of the problem is that the ground is still frozen. i'm hoping since it got really cold overnight and all that water froze, that it will slow the water and maybe even keep it from getting really bad for us, but we won't know until everything has melted and the water has receded. oh yeah, and the foot of snow we just got (after all our snow was basically melted away) isn't helping much either.
