And so it goes…

While driving around town over the weekend I ran across numerous instances of flood preparation. Admittedly, I  haven’t been paying much attention to the latest and greatest crest predictions so don’t know for sure where we stand. But the city is quite calmly taking care of things.

I was also not aware of this product, stamped, “Spirit of Fargo.” It’s a gigantic sandbag which obviates the need for much manpower.

Still, it’s a cringe-inducing sight. I’m not convinced having a flood fighting tool named after your town is a good thing.

South of town where the brunt of high water hits, I could not believe how many houses have been recently removed. That’s a good thing.

Still there are hold-outs. I’m just thankful I don’t have to withstand the emotional gut-punch every spring like this fellow. He was soldiering away protecting his riverside home and had a few feet of protection already in place. I wish him the best.
