The Crest Is Near

We are still holding strong here. Some dikes have had leaks but our wonderful city officials have acted swiflty to repair those areas. The river is at 40.8 feet as of this morning. It sounds like the rise has been slowing up a bit. They are continuing to maintain the official crest prediction of 42 feet, but have moved it Sunday or Monday. So....now we wait and pray. In the meantime, I wanted to show this tribute video I found on youtube.

Hang in there, I know exactly what you are going through. The closeness you are feeling is what i noticed here in grand forks when we went through the flood, it is a great feeling. Was sorry to hear about the school getting flooded and some peoples homes. I personally witnessed many flooded basements and completely destroyed homes. I love you. Uncle Spencer
