    Crikey ! That’s a lot of water !

  2. I would say you could send it our way, but we are in the same boat as you are down here in Nebraska. Record level flooding not seen since back in the 1950’s! Missouri River is supposed to stay above flood stage until late August or early September. The interstate sections that area closed in the Omaha area, we are told, should be open again for Christmas. Hope yours drops quicker than what ours is doing.

    • Thanks Clark. It doesn’t seem to matter if the destination is Gulf of Mexico or Hudson Bay, there is water traveling everywhere on the continent this summer. Good luck with your situation and thanks for reading my blog. Much appreciated. Be happy, Reid
