Perplexed L. You are right. Just doing the late night/morning shift sand bagging thing last night and trying to relax, get to sleep, and start again. My words flew faster than my mind could think.

Last night I was at the Moorhead Community college filling sandbags, and they shut it down. I don't understand why they would shut it down if people were willing to work through the night and they are in such dire need of sandbags. It just doesn't make sense...

putting up all these dikes is acting like a dam and making the water rise higher and higher. more dikes higher water will go. it's simple physics. i'm off to save son stuff in south fargo then we are going sand bagging. PRAY. GOOD LUCK FARGO AND MOOREHEAD!!!

I think we should place the names of the companies that will not allow people off for the flood fight here. I do understand the hospitals and the places that we need to get flood fighting tools from but WHY is the mall open do you really need to go and get a new shirt or pants right now? Do you really need to get a bottle of perfume or anything like that from the mall come on.

How can the National Weather Service be wrong so much of the time? Here they keep raising it, while elsewhere they are wrong about the date of crests, crest levels-over rather than under, the number of crests, and so on. Their sloppiness is wearing everyone out because we have to keep going back and fixing what is already in place.

My heart goes out to the people in the Red River Valley. I was there in '97, and am now stunned that this flood could surpass the '97 disaster by a few feet. Good luck to all.
