Are we all OK?

Post by kiwi60 » Sun Jun 15, 2008 3:10 pm


Were getting a lot of coverage on the news here in New Zealand, of the flooding in the U.S.

Has this effected any one - are we all doing ok?

Yep in teh middle of the Wisconsin flooding. Our downtown in waterlogged. Approx 25-50cm water over the walkways next to the river. Normally they are 1m above the normal waterline. One of the parks here is completely underwater. It has the river on one side and a lagoon on the other. Lots of roads closed. By my house one of the on-ramps to the highway is under 1.5m.

We've been lucky so far around here. Our town has been on the edge of the storms that passed through yesterday. Went out to mow yesterday morning and it blowing so hard it was like a tornado, but without rain....or a tornado. We had some flooding issues around here in the winter, but this summer has been ok so far.

I have some friends in Ohio and Indiana on a machining list that lost everything.
But we're just fine where we are at.
