I can't help but cry when I see, hear, or read the news about N. Dakota and Minnesota too. 9 months ago I was in their shoes so I can't help but feel their pain, frustration, sadness etc. I wish I could help but I am still recovering from our flood disaster. Its difficult to see those pictures, I know before this happened to me I always found flood water so fascinating now it disgusts me because I know under those waters are peoples' lives everything they own, their memories, their treasures. It reminds me of the things that I was able to replace and the things that I will never get back. For those who are affected by these floods keep your heads up as you sort through the muddy muck and stench and whatever you do throw the fridge out without opening it, otherwise that smell will never leave your senses. My thoughts and prayers are with you, I wish I could offer more, but like you the water has taken it all. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though I should be in my house 10 months post flood.
