Flooding Update


Just a quick update. First, thank you for all of those who are sending good thoughts and prayers our way. Things were slightly better across the county today with some areas receding, but everyone is bracing for the worst as semi-heavy rain and snow are forecast for this weekend. Unfortunately it's raining right now.

Anyway, here are some unique aerial pictures that have been shared on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account you can check them out in this album created by Zac Larsen at http://www.facebook.com/FremontCountyFlood2010#!/album.php?aid=2167591&id=193303596&page=2

Here are just a few he has shared. This one have been posted on many family and friends walls as these are my mother's family's ranch: The ranch house is behind the trees on the left.


And this is of the intersection about a mile down the road from us. Normally there is a road between the two houses, and the highway running SW/NE in the photo is our road.
And here is water on the streets of Lander.
Again, all credit for the photos in this post goes to Zac Larsen. As devastating as the pictures are, there have been no lives lost and the emergency response has been quick and effective and the volunteer outpouring amazing.
