The river that divides Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN, where my parents live, is flooding with all of the spring snow melt, and the situation is drastic enough to make national news. Fargo-Moorhead is kind of like Provo-Orem. Practically one city, but the Red River runs between them to divide the towns, and the river is the border between the states. Mom and Dad are on the Moorhead, MN side. Their home is about a 20 minute walk from the river. I'm not too worried about their home flooding because of the distance from the river, but I am worried for the community. It's my hometown. Here's a video that I watched on MSNBC this morning.
Did you notice the kids from Alexandria, MN? That's where I was born. It is good to see so many pulling together. I told Melody this morning that I would love to go home and help, but I suppose that it's not a practical choice with my job and all. I will keep them in my prayers, and hope that you will do the same.
