It's nice now, cold still but not a cloud in the sky.

Let me know if you want me to send a couple bags of speedy dry I have left over from the flood last May. I only used them one time.

We went from 22" on the level ground to about 5" (official average), but have green showing along some streets and ice in the gutters on the other side.

Very little has run off, so the moisture is in the remaining snow, the piles and in the soil and there will be flooding. 220 miles NW of Minneapolis/St. Paul they are staring to fill the 3,000,000 bags of sand that will be a start of the protection. 20 miles east of here they are getting ready with signs for flood detours because there are so many commuters going across that river. - It will be interesting to see what happens as spring unfolds. I designed a power transmission tower that required 22' of concrete below the steel to get above the flood level, but the debris that got into the steel tower caused many problems, so there are no guarantees except that the Red River of the north will flood and be miles wide because it flows north into unthawed areas instead of south where it is already warm.

They are promising 6" more snow this week-end, but it will be gone in a few days, but it will be replaced with more later and moisture will still be stored.

You do have my address to send me some syrup, don't ya? I'd be more than happy to trade some Goo-Goo Clusters for some home grown maple stuff

You really don't need to send it south, thanks anyway.
