The 100 year floods
I'm sure you've all heard of the flooding in North Dakota and Western Minnesota. We took a drive a few days ago and met with many detours and road wash outs. Unbelievable how much water there is! The pictures of the roadsides are fields completely covered in water, with a thin 2 lane road in between. The water is frozen so it doesn't look quite as dramatic as if it were all water, but as it melts it's going to be a mess, worse than it is now. Major highways are closed and many houses are partially submerged. Even the local zoo has to move all the animals out to another zoo because they flood! Happens every year!!!
