    Due to all the flooding that we are having in Iowa, we have decided to postpone the Iowa meetup. We will give you further details when we know them.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if I might be able to make it now. I am out of the Midwest the weekend you guys were holding it!


    This is MAJOR flooding, the worst it's been since the really awful floods back in 1993. It will take a good amount of time for everything to get back to normal... and depending on what the weather does in the next few weeks it might not be okay by then. It's not just the flood waters, either, but drinking water and water pressure are affected by all the flooding.
    Everybody stay safe!

    Definitely not, sadly. It's pretty much a disaster area out here. And with more rain in the forecast, things are going to get worse.

    Honestly, I'm just waiting for Hillside to be evacuated...

    Agreed scob - I'd love to go to Gatlinburg, but I didn't budget for it - and the gas for the drive would be... oh man, in the hundreds of dollars. :(

    I feel for all of you ! I sure wish that I could make one of them ....but I'm running dry !
     
  18. Wow. Y'all should just come on down to Texas. It's always dry down here. In fact, the side of the highway was on fire the other day. Someone probably threw a cig out the window or something. Don't worry, though. That doesn't happen often. :)
