Here are a few pictures of the flooding in North Dakota. These folks are very hard working people who have spent leisure time filling sandbags for the last few months until they had a surplus.
Sadly, we got lots of snow yesterday we didn't need to further the amount of water running.
I am 50 miles west of the flooded area, so it doesn't affect me, but my heart goes out to these folks. If you want to know more about it all, Google for Fargo flood 2011, check out the Weather Channel and say some prayers everybody makes it through it all. Its cold, wet and caring for children, pets, farm animals is most difficult.
If you wish to help with a donation, the Red Cross is already working in the area.
