If you're paying attention you probably know that our neighbors up north in Fargo (and surrounding areas) are pulling together to try and sandbag their way to safety. They are literally watching the surplus of snow they've received this winter melt and turn into a raging, frozen, angry river - destroying everything in it's path. I first of all can't even imagine going through a flood. But imagine a flood that's just a few degrees north of freezing. Breath-taking pain.
So again, I'll take my extra night of sleep in my own bed, my day of staying inside by the fire, and I will gratefully, thankfully, joyfully and heartily load my truck tomorrow. And I will pray for those who don't have that fortune. Join me.
