Because we have family living in Australia, Warren and I have been asked by countless people if our family is near the flooding. We are happy to report that they are far away from the awful floods. Our hearts are filled with sadness for all of those who have lost so much in the past couple of weeks. Because we farm, the plight of those who have experienced several years of extremely dry weather and now horrific rains are especially on our minds. Yet it is the loss of lives that is the biggest tragedy of the floods.
In the Midwest we had some snow overnight.
Our guess is that 4-5 inches of new snow covered the ground this morning.
Nothing that hardy Iowans can not take in stride.
Earlier this winter we had some lovely picture taking days.
