Wet outside

I wanted to add a few pictures of the kitchen at night, well they didn’t turn out very well but here they are anyways. The light is more warm and yellow but the camera makes it look bright and white.

I see that North Dakota is facing some serious flooding, and Fargo is going to have the worst flood in over 100 years. I wish them the best of luck. It looks like we are going to get some bad flooding here as well. Our yard is all under water, the only good thing is that it’s going down to -20 C this week and the most of it will freeze. Our driveway is frozen again right now, it’s been wet and muddy the last week, I’m hoping the cold will stay for a while yet. I’m also happy that we don’t have a basement. Everyone I talk to has water seeping into their basement, our floor is still four feet above the water level.

There’s a guy three miles north of us that has a natural spring in his yard that fills a few ponds with fish in them. As things started to melt this year his yard started to flood, the RM cleared the ditches to his yard a few times to drain the water. Today the water got so high and was threatening his house, they took a backhoe and cut a drainage through the center of the road, it’s about 9 feet across and deep enough for the water to flow between the ditches unrestricted.
