    Id love to, but I have to work tomorrow night.

    Heres a video I shot earlier today with Frog. This starts at the park that is down the street from her house, goes over the bridge, then into Iowa.

    They will be sandbagging buildings on base this afternoon. Went and looked at the levee down behind base that they bagged.... ALOT fuller than before.. Zombie has the pic.

    They put down about 350,000 sandbags to make the levee higher.... sad part is that there is a possibility that it wont crest OVER but will wash out the levee like it did the Hamburg, Ia. one


    I am not sure how long the levees here can hold up to all this water and at the speed its going.
