Dead End Road, No Really Dead End

Flooding/Global Warming

With all the things we hear about global warming, after this past winter a few degrees wouldn't be such a bad thing. But the problem is once we get that wonderful spring weather, that means that the snow has to go. And by now most of us are ready say goodbye, but once that snow changes back to water, it has to go somewhere. And that is when the Iowa River comes in handy, but once that fills where does the water go? Well of course there are ditches and there are yards and fields and such, but then some rain on top of that and we have what the weather man likes to call a flood, yep thats right, A flood. Maybe winter wasn't all that bad...

i knew it was gonna be bad when all that snow melted we had record rainfall amounts last summer so when we started getting record snowfall amounts in the winter i knew we were in for some major flooding come spring.
