We are fighting.... Moorhead Flooding

Moorhead and Oakport are still fighting the flood, it is creeping up and there is still so much to do. We are trying to get to all the lower houses first. Our entire family has been working tirlessly to do as much as we can to save all the homes out here including most of our own family and the shop. The river is just about to the office and shop area. I am tired... we are all tired and overwhelmed, the situation has only gone from bad to worse in our area. I am lucky because I have faith that God will see us through this. It will all work out in the end. Just keep praying for us..... that we will have the strength that we need to get us through this.
And no... Jeremy and I have not sandbagged yet. We will wait until those that are lower are done. We feel fairly safe, as we are a bit higher than some of the houses around us, we will probably be an island if the worst happens. If we sandbag now... It will really spread panic. And too many people are looking to us for answers so we do not want to give them the wrong one.

My darling girl, I'm amazed you had the strenght to write. I'm praying for your all. I wish I was there to help you. I feel so helpless. I've asked everyone to pray for you and Jer. You are going to be ok. It's not going to be easy but you will make it. I love you. Mom
