We are not, however, out of the woods. Levee is very much repaired. Local dam held off releasing flood water until we could do as much as possible... whether it's enough?

We don't know... they are going to be releasing more water any day now... a little over 50% more... that to prepare for the snow melt. All we can do now is wait to see if the levee can handle it.

Today I am fixing some things in the house that are easier to fix now that the house is basically empty. I've moved some stuff back but no more than what we can evacuate again in a very short time.... like and hour or two. That means VERY good news - I'm sleeping in a bed again. I'm not very keen on those blow up air mattresses. laughing smiley

Thanks for asking Mama. Geez... I miss my Ram's news... maybe tomorrow I can try to catch up a little. - JamesJM
