saving grandmas farm again since 93

Since the Flood of 93 they have taken out the bridge next to grandmas lil farm and replaced it with a caulvert in hopes of helping the flooding matters, but as the water is still rising it looks as though we will still have to use our sand bagging efforts to keep back the water from over taking the farm house. It has yet to over flow the dike in the back of the house but more water is expected to head our way.
