Water, Water, Everywhere

Fargo, North Dakota - March 2009

It's the season of the Spring floods.

In Woolwich, Maine. Breaking up ice on the 149-mile-long Kennebec River to minimize flooding is a rite of spring. The goal is to break up ice to prevent jams that can cause floods.

Earlier this week, residents in northwestern Ohio saw creeks and rivers flood after heavy storms.

About 50 families had to evacuate their homes in Defiance, and Maumee floodwaters washed into the town hall, restaurants and a few antique stores in Grand Rapids.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected as the record snowfall from winter 08-09 melts and wreaks havoc. Believe me, people down here know what you're going thru.
