We took these photos on Thursday when the water level was 26.5 feet. The Cedar River crested Friday morning at 31.12 feet. Previously the record was an even 20 feet in 1929 and 1851. Watch the video to really understand the devastation that has occurred here. We managed to stay relatively dry (minor basement issues due to the 5 1/2 inches of rain that fell on Thursday) and feel lucky that we live on a hill. Please pray for those who have been affected by this catastrophe.
