You have probably heard about the flooding in the Midwest. We had a pretty wet spring (following a very wet winter) and this past week or so, we got enough rain to really push us over the edge. Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is largely underwater, and a levee failure up in the Wisconsin Dells drained Lake Delavan (an artificial lake) and washed away at least five houses. Sitting as we do about midway between Cedar Rapids and the Wisconsin Dells, I'm happy to report that we have a couple of minor puddles in our basement. Our area certainly has had its share of rain (and then some!) but we've dodged the devastating flooding that has hit some areas. So, don't worry about us, but do pray for those who have been hit hard.
