    I was just concerned about how your brother is doing?? You mentioned he is in Fargo, ND. Hope he and his family are safe.

    Thanks for asking, 2B. It’s crazy there. He’s been doing what the rest of Fargo is, loading sand bags. His place should be ok, but the problem with the Red River area is, that it is so flat, the ground is frozen, and there is no place for the water to go! And if they do manage to keep it to a course, it’s still frozen north towards Canada and will just come back and spread out. Sort of a lose-lose situation! And the Missouri, in the middle of the state is just as bad. I live on the Yellowstone River in Eastern Montana and it just went out, so ice is piled up on the banks here. Some flooding west of us but should be ok where I am.

    There is a picture in our local morning paper of a house in Hickson, ND surrounded by water and ice. I hadn’t realised about the problem with the ice until I saw that picture, it just makes a terrible situation even more miserable. Keeping my fingers crossed that all the sand bag filling helps where your brother is and you keep safe PJ.

    One update is that my brother had to get a tetanus shot, most are being told to make sure their’s are up to date, because of the dangers. Many farms along the Red are in danger too so it’s not just the city. If one particular dike fails, all of downtown Fargo will be underwater. What a mess! And more snow is predicted.

    Yes–parts of a couple of dikes are failing, and more evacuations are underway right now–I live in Valley City, ND–60 miles west of Fargo/Moorhead–we have some minor flooding on the Sheyenne River here, but nothing like Fargo area.

    Hope your brother continues to do well PJ–he and all the volunteers are a real blessing to F/M area right now.

    Thank you 2P–our area is nowhere near as hard-hit as Fargo–and every time I hear another news conf., it’s getting worse. The Sheyenne River here will be cresting Sat., but supposed to be about a foot above flood stage–Fargo right now is at almost 41 feet–flood stage is 18 feet. They are expecting crest within 24 hrs at about 43 feet! That’s devastating.
