The kindness of strangers

Looks like they've plugged the hole in the dike, i'll be looking at it in person this morning and releasing the animmals from the trailers if I think that it's safe. This has been a major flood event; there are hundreds of houses under water and thousands of miles of road closed and damaged.

One of the really nice things about this sort of event is that people who don't know each other really go the extra mile to help each other. Here's an ad that appeared on the local craigslist.

Thank you, Juliane, for going the extra mile to help other farms and farmers. It's people like Juliane that make a community so much better.
