13 June 2008

random bits from lake cedar rapids.

when i look outside and see the sunshine, it's very bittersweet.
there are over 9,000 people who can't enjoy this day.
the cedar river did crest today and is said to be going down, but reports are indicating that that's not visibly evident.
they are saying it could take well over a week for the river to go down.

we drove as far as our house yesterday to see if we had water in the basement. downtown was heavily policed and many parts of the city were under military control. we live several blocks away from the river, but streets were flooded as close as two blocks away from us. this was a shot of our street and sidewalk.

the football field behind our high school...see the goal post?

on a happier note.
pictures of my sweet girl with her new bunny.
also a minute or two of her in her play pen. a few sounds, a few smiles.

'you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much i love you
please don't take
my sunshine
away.'

go well.
