So it has been raining like crazy! Iowa City is flooding and we are on the very verge of having the Coralville Reservoir spill over the top of the dam. People have been sandbagging all weekend, roads are closed, and the dam is a hot visitor's attraction. This is really all quite amazing to me, a girl from the Utah desert. The rain keeps coming...frequently, but also very heavily when it does. We sure could use some regular hot, sweltering Iowa summer days instead of the continued wetness we have had all year. Luckily, we are in no danger of flood damage but many houses and local businesses are already at risk if not under water. Very sad.

You Utahns, keep praying for rain...maybe we can divert it away!
