I'm drawing a line in the... snow. If spring can't come to me, I am bribing spring to take up residence on my kitchen table and in small ways around the house.
You see completely why I feel this way? Because this is what the neighborhood looks like just day 1 of the big push to construct our dikes before the river rises. The river is at 20 some feet right now... and is going to swell and surge and burst onto the scene at a roaring 38 feet... by Saturday. Try as I did, I could not get close enough to the river for any decent shots.
The view of the coulee a block over from our house. This year the river is being capped by a huge earthen levy and a flood gate instead of our wall of vulnerable sandbags like last year.
Please bare with me if I am a bit sparse around these parts this week. Waiting for the sandbags to arrive along with the National Guard... here we go again.
