Gavins Point Damn and win from Carol!

Happy Sunday all! Hope the day is going good for you!

I just wanted to share with you all the reason why there is so much flooding going on right now in Western Iowa and Eastern Nebraska. There is so much snow melt coming down the Missouri River from Montana so that means that this dam has to release water. And releasing is what it is doing!! Record release. We spent the day here Saturday in South Dakota. The force of this water being released is just unreal.

This was taken driving on the road to get to the damn.

These 2 pictures were taken from the Lewis and Clark Visitors building up above the dam. Very pretty but not good news.

Also Saturday, I received my givaway win from Carol over at Firecracker Kid Primitives. I totally love it. Her and her hubby Tim make the greatest stuff, excellent workmanship!! She also sent me this great jar with this great primitive label on it. Love it! Thanks so much Carol and Tim!
