The River Also Rises

We're wrapping up a doozie of a week here at the homestead, way too much work and work related stuff.  How was your week? 

The frigid winter temperatures finally appear to be somewhat subsiding and we're in for a major heat wave starting today (mid 50's) through the weekend where mid to upper 60's are forecast.  This is fantastic for us so we can start to thaw out from winter and maybe even begin some long over due winter clean up chores, but it's bad for the flooding situation to get so warm so quickly. 

We won't have any flooding problems here in Grand Forks, but they may in other parts of the state.   The river is only expected to crest at 43 feet (we're protected up to 60+) here so we're not worried.  If you're a weather geek like I am, or if you just like graphs and numbers and such, you should check out the National Weather Service/NOAA website.  It has the projected river crest, flood predictions, and lots of other cool stuff related to weather here in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
