I have been watching the boob-tube
for update of Columbus Junction. My
dad was down from there and we still
have lots of relatives in the area
and Wapello. It is a mind-blowner
of all the damage the Mississippi
or The Iowa River can do! We got a
bit more water around the restaurant
today and looks like it will be a
long stretch before it goes down.I
filed for unemployment for a couple
of weeks, our post office is closed
and shipping all mail to Blue Grass
until things calm down.

I went to school at University of Iowa a few years back, and have a lot of friends that go there, now... crazy to see the damage in Iowa City, especially the flooding on Dubuque street! I'm not familiar with Cedar Rapids, but those shots from the Weather Channel of their damage is pretty crazy too.

Glad to hear you are all ok! It is supposed to be a dry week, so let's keep our fingers crossed that they predicted that right!

Restarting my journey after baby #2 :)

Definitely was a noisy one here and knocked
the power out for about an hour. Didn't help
the flooding problems we had to sandbag like
crazy to keep the river out the restaurant i
work at in Buffalo and take a temporary layoff
until it goes down.The highway, part of it is
closed off clear down to Fairport. my niece
was to go Des Moines for a baseball games and
couldn't because I-80 is detoured that way.

We got a LITTLE bit of water in our basement, but that's about it. One of the good things about living on a giant hill in Moline. The lawn is a pain to mow, but we generally stay pretty dry! Hope everyone is doing well!

Our power went out for a few hours last night. The water in our pool is nearly to the top of the rim.

Just wanted to post, make sure everyone is ok. I can't believe the storms last night! I was at my parents' house for dinner, and we weren't going to leave but had to get home to give my daughter medication for a virus she has. Their pool nearly overflowed, and the electricity went out briefly.

Anyone else have problems?
