    Folks, I'm watching CNN and the news guy is standing knee deep in the middle of a town street netting fish!
    I thought we had it bad in my part of Indiana. Iowa folks are in serious trouble.
    Our hearts and prayers goes out to the thousands of people that have been evacuated from their homes, and to many others having so much damage losing homes and property from this disaster... be safe.

    Amem to that! I was born in Cedar Rapids. Now Des Moines has had it's problems, but this time around, C.R. took it way harder on the chin. I second the send out of thoughts and prayers to all those folks affected by the flooding and severe weather that has come through this year...

    complaining about high water ruining the fishing now would be selfish/sick and wrong. Many folks are having a terrible time. I wish i was closer to them so i could be of more help.... atleast, most of iowa is on the down side, next the cleanup.
