These pictures are not the best but they were at night...like my bedtime nighttime! Yep yesterday afternoon the national guard showed up at our corner (about a block away) and started the process of building a dike to keep back the Red River. The nice soldier almost didn't let me leave last night to get the kids from Awana, but remembered me when I came back and waved at and saluted the kids as we drove by. They were so excited that there were soldiers there and were looking all over for Jordan, convinced that he would be there!!
Three dozers and they told us nine dump trucks hauled wet muddy clay ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Yep I woke up quite a few times to the sounds of dump boxes slamming, and then the beeping noise they all make when they back up!
