I Walked

The water was at 52.17 ft. tonight. The National Weather Service still predicts we'll get to around 52.5 ft and will stay there for a long time.

I walked the north half of the main dike this afternoon with my daughter. She's showing off the ResQ Disc the dike walkers carry. These discs are thrown like a Frisbee and a rope unwinds from them that can support 500 lbs.

The high school students helped build this sandbag dike at the Helen Moris home. It's keeping the water out so far.

Ohmann's Island just east of the red river bridge.
