Flood Waters 2011

The Bear River is starting to rise again.  At my house the water is just a inch or two from the top of the bank on the West side.  We have had record rain fall in May and that is not going to help with the run off at all.  On the news today they said that they had more rain in May of 2011 than they did in May 1993.  I am starting to wonder if even our the property our home is on will be seeing some flood water here in a few short weeks.  Sulfur Creek is completely full and water is spilling over the spill way so there will be no buffer there.  Brian and I have made plans to protect the buildings on our property and we pray that our efforts will be enough.  I hope everyone else is doing the same if they have any thought that water might get to your homestead.  Please start preparing now if you already haven't done so.  There is a lot of snow to melt off up high and it only has one place to go an that is down.  I don't think we can hope for a slow warm up at this point.  June is just a little over 24 hours away and the warm temperatures are getting closer and closer.  Be wise and diligent and prepare for the worst case scenario.  Get your 72 hour kits ready.  DON'T WAIT!  Get things up and stored away from low areas of your property (i.e. books, papers, clothing, furniture, etc).  I pray that everyone will stay safe and that no harm will come to any of use.
