Flood 2009

The Flood of 2009 is on it's way. It's pretty serious and people are working around the clock to save as many homes as they can. I went up to capture some of the before photos of the situation. In these photos, the river is at about 21.4 feet. It is expected to rise between 39-41 feet by Friday of this week. At 40 feet, the river would be at the top of the dike, which is where I was standing to take the bottom two pictures.

Shanny, I sent you some pictures of our own flood event out here in the west. We are under lots of water, many many roads closed, and lots of houses under water. Now, this IS the wild west! Check em out!
