Floods of 2008

They're talking about closing I-80 east and west of Des Moines due to the waters being forecast to cover the bridges. Just great! I'm supposed to go to an OB appointment tomorrow at 8 a.m. I'll be able to get into Des Moines, but leaving it to return home will be a problem. I will be going to the appointment. I guess I'll have to figure out how to get back home.

Who thought we would have to go through this again. The rains last night were hard for a while, then they would lighten only to hit hard again and again. My square of garden near our entry door looked like a little swimming pool, passing the sidewalk and edging closer to the foundation of our house.

Steve told me today that the gopher, or whatever crawls around under our grass making tunnels, actually helped us by doing that as the water would go down into those tunnels and flow away from our home. At least something good came out of that, huh? I hope Abby and Justin remembered to stock up on dog supplies for Daisy. Halfmoon
