Oh, I have similar feelings about Fall as well. I don't like wet weather EVER.
The rivers are thawing and rising. No serious flooding in the area close to me yet, but it won't be long before the fields are under water again. I was noticing some pretty big junks of ice on the Red River as we crossed today. Since the silly thing runs north, we may be in for some flooding, but I'm hopeful that our lack of snow will help us avoid it. Looks like my hopefulness is going to win out. Just found an article from an area paper that agrees with me. Yippie!!!! Unfortunately, some people are dealing with flash floods due to ice jams.
It's been 10 years this spring since the last major flood in this area. That was one awful Spring. I remember the devestation that cause. Looks like Uncle Sam has finally come through with the final funding to finish the dike. The thing is 97% complete. With this funding, it will be finished by Sept.
Well time to close with a quote or two :)
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.
Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.
