Sandbagging 
Tuesday, 25 May, 2004, 05:43
I just realized that the date on my last news entry was wrong, so I changed it.

Jeff, Bob, and Julie were over here yesterday to fill sandbags and move stuff up from the basement. We got a lot of stuff done, but the house still needs more sandbags. At this moment, the river is at 6.92 feet, with roughly 4.5 feet left until it crests on Thursday. The good news is that it already crested in Russell, on the Illinois/Wisconsin border ... the bad news is that it crested 0.65 feet above what the National Weather Service forecasted. And, it's goling to rain soon. Bummer. We're FREAKING HOSED.
