I live in a river town. We have had record river levels and a ton of flooding in my area. I do not live very far at all from the levee. Our town has asked anyone who can to please evacuate our neighborhood. This was just suggested not mandatory. My family took the suggestion seriously and we have left our home. So far my home is still safe. Hopefully we will be back in it by the end of the week.
I'll be back soon to blog about what I have learned from this experience :)
