Had a inch of rain yesterday on top of remaining snow. Water is three feet deep in one spot over road behind me. Picture several is stitched together and didn't turn out perfectly but you get the idea. Phone line is under this, losing contact every few minutes.

Thats how I determined how deep it was, trying to save the tractors :D They're on the high ground, surrounded by sandbags.

Houses are well above surrounding terrain. If you see me on top of the house, you'd better be looking for the ark. No more rain today so water is starting to drop. Thanks for all the offers though.

Not an ice jam, just a lot of water getting into the drainage at once. Not unusual to have a bunch of water in the spring, but not this much. It'll go down pretty fast if it doesn't rain any more and something doesn't plug up downsteam.

We have lucked out this winter/spring. Stayed pretty cold most of the time, and just a few warm days here and there to melt the snow slowly. eaven my yard/mud hole, is walkable. As long as the rains stay away, maybe I will get a lawn this spring.

Water has dropped enough we can get out by driving through a short stretch of 8 inch deep water. Road didn't wash out completely, but it's pretty well shot. All the gravel is in the ditch, piles of stalks all over that have washed out of the fields.

Glad to here the water has gone down. Eastern part of ND must be like Eastern SD. Seems they always get more snow and rain and they don't know what to do with all the water in the spring. When I went to Rugby ND it surprised me that the water really didn't have a place to run off like it does here in the Western part of SD. Just seems the draws and the creeks are so much deeper here. Anyways glad to here the tractors are safr:) :) . Hope you didn't have any water damage.

Water is just about back in it's banks. Made a bit of a mess, but there were people that lost there homes, so can't complain too much. I think we'll need to hire a back hoe to clean some of it up.

Actually, I saw a seagull eating what looked like a fish. Might have been a bullhead that washed down. Fish have to be closer than my front yard to entice me.

You sound like me, they can be jumping into my arms and I would still let them go. Guess that why I collect tractors so others can go fishing :) :D :) :D

We are suppose to get snow this Fri. and Sat. We could use about 3 ft of snow and most farmers and ranchers would jump for joy. Haying equipment parts haven't been moving very much, To much wind and to little moisture.
