Need to Build an Ark !!

The Omaha skyline is in the background on this photo (NOTE:  I work in that VERY tall building). This photo was taken at a casino car lot and shows just how much the Missouri River is flooding its banks.

A river runs through it ...


New farming technique ...



No rush hour traffic here ...




Not fit for man nor fowl ...




And while my comments might seem humorous, my prayers go out to all those affected by this 500 year flood as they are calling it.  Many will lose their homes and businesses to this massive flood, that isn't expected to subside until LATE July ... I can't even imagine.

I'm sorry for all the flooding but your first photo with the skyline and the sun is stunning! What an amazing picture. Hope the water receeds soon. My parents live in Iowa and they experience a lot of flooding as well.
