we are very much thinking of our friends in iowa right now.
in 1993, iowa city had massive flooding that lasted for weeks. that flood was described as a 100-year flood (see this site for more info on the 1993 flood). now, it looks like history is about to repeat itself in a very bad way. i found all kinds of photos and videos shot on our old street, normandy drive, on the internet. it looks as though many people volunteered to fill sandbags, and i feel incredibly guilty for not being there to help. i even found an image of our former postman filling sandbags on normandy. anyway, if anyone in iowa city is reading this: we're thinking of you!
(all of the following images were shot on normandy drive by matthew holst of the press-citizen and brian ray of the gazette)
(this is bill, our former postman)
and i also found these videos of what is going on there, also shot on normandy drive:
