It seems like just yesterday that my sister Ellen had the Missouri River in her basement all summer. It was three years ago. They're really just finally getting their house back to normal - refinishing things little by little.
And if you've been paying attention to all the news in the Midwest, you probably know where I'm headed with this.
Somewhere between the heavy snow, big thaw, thunderstorms, tornadoes, broken levee upstream and just pure bad luck, a huge part of the interestate near my sister's home is being turned into a levee and they're waiting to see if they're going to be flooded once again... this time by the Big Sioux River.
The water is expected to peak Friday at 6 p.m.
Please keep everyone in the South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska flood zones in your thoughts and prayers. But especially pray for my sister, if you don't mind.
