FLOOD 08 CLEAN UP

My family and I have been cleaning up my Uncle's house after the flood, he lives close to the river in time check. My teenage son was resting in front of the house when it hit me. He could be spending his summer doing things he likes. But he would rather help clean up after the flood so our family member can have his home back. No matter what happens there is not a boundary for the ages to come together to help. My Grandma is 81, my mother and uncle are 52, my son is 17, they all pulled together. Only in Iowa will you see so many care.
