The Flood

So this week(s) have been an adventure. As most of you know I now work in Cedar Rapids and live in Iowa City, which as everyone in the nation should have heard is a disaster area. The Dieter's are fine if your wondering, the water didn't even come close to us. The news stations have been playing non-stop for over a week. Even the president is coming to see the damage. Mostly for me, it's been the challenge getting to and from work. Yesterday I ended up getting suck in Cedar Rapids because they shut down my sneaky back road I was taking because too many people had figured it out and the gravel road was falling apart from the heavy flow of traffic. Thank goodness one of my co-workers let me stay with her so I didn't have to sleep at the office. The picture is of Highway 1 which is the way I normally like to drive to work because I can avoid the interstate traffic. It's going to be awhile before they get around to fixing that... At least now 380 is open again so now if we can just get people to stop staring and stopping to taking pictures and just drive things can start getting back to normal.


  1. Wow! So glad you're all okay - we are thinking of you a lot!

  2. Very glad you all are alright. Miss you.
