The Great Flood of 2011

A friend in NE just sent me this link. Very sad, unbelievable images. It will get a lot worse before it gets better, too. Sucks.

The casino owners had the right idea.  I wonder why no-one else seemed to.  You could build a 15 ft high wall of dirt around a home in a morning with a backhoe.  Or around a smallish neighborhood in a couple of days.

Sucks none the less.  We should all learn from their pain, and refrain from building at ground level on a floodplain.  Admittedly, it has never flooded to this extent since Western settlers arrived, but other places are destroyed every few years, which could be avoided by building up the ground, or building homes on stilts.

All that water has to go somewhere . . .
