Friday's Flood Efforts
Water is predicted to overflow the banks of Moccasin Creek today. This is a little creek that passes through the city of Aberdeen...and through my mother-in-law's back yard. Sandbags are ready to go at both ends of her street. Emergency Management Personnel are to keep them posted and since she hasn't called, everything must still be OK. The cold temperatures have been in our favor. The picture below is right behind her house. The chainlink fence on the right is her neighbor. The tall evergreens are in Grandma's yard. You can see the water is nearly to the top of the dike. Our family remembers sandbagging here on Easter Weekend in 1997. This, of course, is nothing compared to what people are experiencing in Fargo.
