update and pictures 939pm

flood stage is 12 ft.
9pm thursday 31 ft
(mind you they thought it was only going to go to 24.9 ft.)

we are still pumping away here. one of our pumps is being quite tempermental so we are having to use the smaller capacity one. the rain is slowing here for the moment so we are hoping to get some catch up pumping done.
We did go into cedar rapids tonight so those pictures are in the link as well. some are blurry as we couldn't get out of our vehicle on the highway.
i can say that i have never seen anything like this in my life and hope to never again.
words can't describe what we witnessed tonight. you will get an idea from the pictures but they don't capture it.
