I have heard from many of you who are concerned about the flooding in North Iowa. Garner is just west of I-35 which runs north and south through the middle of the state. The hardest hit area yesterday was east of I-35 — they got 10″ last night and another 2″ this morning. Jo’s Country Junction, north of there, got hit hard a couple weeks ago and I haven’t heard how much they got yesterday. The farmers are going to be in some trouble with harvest work for sure.
I should have taken some pictures in town this morning – ditches are full and parking lots are flooded. Here is how we are affected by heavy rain and we are on high ground so we are in great shape.
Here is what I worked on yesterday – the jellyroll bars quilt made from men’s shirts. This is very time consuming to cut from shirts which makes me appreciate yardage and those jelly rolls even more! Ha!
