The flood happened, as well as a blizzard, and the city still stands. Our mayor told state and national officials that the people are the only reason our city stands, and that we will not evacuate everyone. Our apartment is safe, and most of the city is intact. I feel for the people that have lost their homes, but overall, it has been a success. Thanks to all the volunteers and wonderful people for all their hard work! This truly shows the beauty of the North Dakota work ethic. We only needed about 1.5 millions sandbags, but we didn't take any chances. We went and made 3.5 million!
We might not be out of the woods yet. We still have snow, including the snow from the blizzard, to melt. We are taking one day at a time.
I wish I could say more, but Core Con is this weekend and I have a lot to do. I will get back to my writing schedule after the event. Come on by if you can! We have a lot of wonderful things lined up!
