With all the rain and melting snow, there is a lot of flooding going on all around us. There was a picture in the paper yesterday of a softball team on their home field… in a boat. They haven’t been able to practice there in a couple of weeks because it has been underwater. All the flood gates and irrigation canals are wide open, but the Missouri River is still overflowing. Luckily here in town we are staying pretty dry, at least as far as flooding is concerned.
The kids and I ended up down at the river today. There were gaggles of geese hanging out on the shores of the swollen river. Between the high winds and fast-moving water, I am sure they were enjoying their much needed rest.
