How Highs the Water Momma?

Huckleberry riding in my lap and checking out the flood waters after we picked him and Buddy up Sunday after our return from Chicago at the Lucky Pawz evacuation location.

The last bridge open in Iowa City across the Iowa River - we are driving on Burlington Street.

Crossing the Cedar River on I-380 - to get back to Iowa Ci ty from Chicago we had to go through Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Ely. A drive that normally takes 3.5 hours took almost 8 hours.
