Guitar Ted suggested it this morning, and after living through it the last few days, I gotta say its true. Decorah was hit hard. I wish I could get there to help, but KDEC is telling folks to just stay away at this point. They have both too much water, and too many volunteers at this point. I really want to head over there though. Normal flood stage is something like 12 feet on the Upper Iowa. Water levels now are at 17+, and all low lying areas are being evacuated.
I've got a good group of friends that live there. Here's to hoping things are going to be ok for them. Hope their homes are up and out of the flood zone.
A few rain totals:
Dorchester IA; 9"
Yellow River State Forest; 2.9"
Lansing IA; 3"
Crescoe IA; 4½"
Due to all the rain, the Monday Mountain ride is off. I may still head out to check the trails at La Riviere, but won't be doing too much riding methinks...
