Gee and we're sniveling about no rain and our wells getting low already. Need that happy medium.

The river has crested, so hopefully folks will be able to get to their homes, and start the recovery process. Thanks again for the prayers and support.

I live along the same river as this photo. This has been an exceptionaly bad year. Flood stage was 7th all-time highest in history. The highest since 1958. It's not something you ever get used to, even though it is a flood plane. Awesome shots, prairieview.

sad, haunting and poignant photograph but spring flood water is what rejuvenates the Earth, just as fire and hurricanes have throughout history; human habitation has to be above the floodplain. i know. Rita told me so.

You live on a flood plain, then complain when it floods. Flooding enriches the soil, sure it's frustrating, but hey you could always start growing rice until the waters recede. I'm not trying to be negative at all, but rivers flood and there are flood plains all over the world. I live just above a flood plain every year the farmers who live on the flood plain get flooded. I hope the waters recede soon so you can get to planting. Please consider my suggestion about planting rice. (OK that was sarcasm)

This is just heartbreaking. Having been flooded myself last year by Hurricane Sandy, I can clearly understand how devastating these floods are. Sending whatever good thoughts might help and sincere prayers for the safety of all concerned. This is a very powerful picture and thank you for posting.

This is horrible. This is horrible. Those poor people and their buildings and their farm. We should be planting.. whenever will they get their planting done. If it gets done.  And when will those buildings be back to normal!  This is horrible. I live in Wisconsin next to Illinois and I did not know it was this bad.
