The Fargo/Moorhead area is scrambling to make sure things are ready for the River to Crest this weekend... tomorrow I presume, at about 42 feet.
Let me give you a little info.... The Red River usually sits at 14 feet, but it might reach 43 feet. It has currently reached over 40 feet this morning (the 100 year flood mark). So, that is a lot of water for the dikes to hold.
I have moved all my "valuables" upstairs and plan to head to the dome hear shortly to sand bag for as long as I can. I will go all day if I have to. I need to pack a few bags, just in case I need to flee, per parent request.
On a good note, my parents were able to get back into their house yesterday afternoon. Good news, NO WATER in the house! The yard is one huge ice rink, however! Yay!
Even when the water crests this weekend, this mess is far from over. Keep the prayers and well wishes coming our way. Boy do we need them now more than ever.
I hope to be posting some pictures in the near future.
I am out!
