Any Fargo Members??

I've been reading about the flooding there and wondering if any of our member live in Fargo. My thoughts to anyone that does.

I have a friend that lives in Fargo - I called her yesterday - but have not heard from her so am hoping she went to her mom's house in MN which would be safe - hoping to hear from her today

I lived there when I was little.

My mother's late cousin's wife was evacuated from a nursing home.

Strangely, the very cold weather seems to be helping the situation.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

I lived in Grand Forks when I was in the service, and people don't understand some of the basics about that area. The Red River is one of the very few in the world that flows north, and probably the only one that flows into ice and has a blizzard coming after a fast thaw. On top of it, picture draining a sink full of water down the drain in your kitchen. Imagine taking even half that amount of water and throwing it on your kitchen counter. North Dakota (and that part of Minnesota) is that flat surface. And don't forget, we depend upon this part of the country for much of what we need to sustain life. I know that now it is receding, but there is still a real thaw coming. Let's all think of the people there and hope for the best.
