Welcome Back Mr. Flood - 2009

The first two pictures are in Grand Forks, ND. My oldest sister lives here, they are just waiting to see what happens. What a nightmare!!

This is the bridge seperating North Dakota from Minnesota. Notice the walls that will hopefully keep the Red River from flooding??

This is the same bridge......very high waters!!

This is my other sisters home, in Bismarck, ND. She was evacuated earlier this week and is now back in her home, that was not flooded. Yeah!!
It is amazing how people have come together to help everyone out during these tough times. My mother called me at work today to tell me that Northwest Airlines sent 2 of their largest planes to Fargo, ND to transport Nursing Home Residents to Bismarck. They are being housed at the University of Mary, and some were transported to the hospital/nursing home in Minot. They were in need of volunteers to help at the University, and I just heard from my sister that they have more help then they need. Isn't that great?? and then we have all the employees at the hospital/nursing home in Minot that are working extra to help out. The weather in ND may suck for 5 months out of the year, but we sure have GREAT people!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
Thanks for all the prayers.

It IS heartwarming to hear of everyone pitching in to help. Praying for the water to stay well below the predicted levels.
