Flood News

You have seen the flood news from the Midwest, and from what I witnessed on my trip to Iowa, it is worse than even the depressing news organizations can show. Bottomland fields in the Mississippi system aren't going to produce anything this year, and the effects are going to be severe for everyone who has connections to the farm economy.

I clicked on the Mid-Continent Railway Museum link tonight and was saddened to see that this great Wisconsin tourist attraction was devastated by flooding also. Go to their site and click on the Flood Update link to look at photos of the damage; or click here.

They will be up and running soon, and if you plan to visit, there is another pleasant place in the same neighborhood that you will not want to miss.
