Well here in Iowa it is getting crazy! We about to be washed outta our beloved city : ( I don't know if you all have heard but because of some melting snow and lack of releasing damns along the way for months, it is now a disaster and the core of engineers are having to release about 5 damns at once. It is/has destroyed many farms and citys here in Iowa.
My Momma lives on the west end of Council Bluffs and we have been packing up her things from the basement and trying to get it all out so her possessions are not ruined. It is so hard to try to decide what means the most to you. This is my mother's possessions for the last 30 years! I am so very proud of her though she has been getting rid of things and "thinning the heard" so to speak. We have been working at her place for about 3 weeks now. I also have other family members that are being affected by all of this.
Here are some pictures of the area:The picture above is looking towards Omaha, Ne which is a hop across the river from us. You can see the Omaha skyline in the top right hand corner.
This is the Morman bridge that goes over into Omaha, Ne from the Iowa side.
This used to be restaurant many years ago. My family used to live about 5 miles from this place. I still had family that lived out by here and now it is all covered with water & they have had to relocate for now.
This is such a tragedy and please keep the MANY families & friends that are being affected by this in your prayers. So far is hasn't crept into the city but if the rumors are correct it will only be a matter of time : (
