The city has been diligently working for a week or so.  The dikes are being removed and sandbags are piled high on many curbs waiting to be picked up.  This weekend there are a variety of post-flood celebrations and I just might pick up a “Sandbag U” t-shirt to support the local Red Cross.  The mayor is a hero and deservedly so. He handled the situation like a champ and the city came through the other side.  The people we know who were in direct danger made it through with little or no damage to their homes and bodies. Again, thank you for all your prayers.
