The worst rain is again passin 100 miles N of us. That said, the radio
reports water up to 4' deep on all major 4 lane roads, one a US Highway,
another a former US highway before the highway bypassed the town. I
suspect that the major 4 lane restricted access roads will be closed
soon, if not already flooded.
One block south, there is flooding. Fortunately, we are 50' higher, so
no real floods here, but I can see the water is into the shed, so the
carport and garage will be flooded from surface runoff. another 12-15"
expected before morning.
100 miles N, they already had 15" and everything was flooded
yesterday. That is the cedar valley. Cedar Rapids is bracing for
another flood, but as of this morning, it ws not expected to be as bad
as the "1000 year flood" in 2008.
Judging by the "500 year" and "1000 year" floods I have seen and
survived, I forget how old I am. somewhere between 2500 years old and
5000 years old, I think. Maybe more...
