Red River Crests and Falls

Posted by John Freeland

They’re getting really good at it, fighting floods, that is. The National Weather Service predicted a crest of 38 feet and that’s the wall height the dike crews built. The River crested at 37-feet.

The dike building crews, thousands of them, mostly high school and college kids, did it for free, or for coffee and donuts, a ham and cheese sandwich, something like that. Where’s their bailout? I say give it to them.

And a pound of ground beef for the dog, too.
