Floods

I spent last Saturday as a volunteer filling sandbags to support the flood efforts in West Central IL. I was working near the town of Ursa which is north of Quincy. My farm is 40 miles east and on a bluff above the Illinois River and so is safe from the flooding. But my dad grew up in the flood area and I was born there as well so I felt the need to help out. I’ll probably do the same thing this weekend as storms overnight dropped another 8 inches of rain in that area. Anyway, I thought you might like to see photos of the flood damage in that little corner of the state. The link takes you to a map where you can click on several areas to take you to photo pages.

I like the map and photos - Mother nature always amazes me, in her fury and beauty.

Can we have the Global Warming/2012/Pole shift argument now?

I would trade you some Texas sun for a few storm clouds right about now. I could use a good storm and you could use a break.

No problem with Global Warming though I don't think it plays the huge role that people think it does. I think we are dealing with cycles as well that we've just not been on the Earth long enough to see the pattern of. I doubt anything will really end in 2012 and you know how I feel about the pole shift. Either it's going to happen or it's not and if not, no problem. If it does there is nothing we can do about it so no problem.

I'll trade with you anytime.
