FT Turbs email

Just got an email from Ron:

"Hey Neil,
Let everyone know I'm ok and kicking.
We're all fine but recent storms have saturated our place with water and basement is full of water.
Sump pump has just barely been keeping up with water.
Roads have been washed out in the area and fields are flooded.
Not a good scenario around here and to top it off my phone took a crap and
I should be getting another today.
Not to mention we are leaving for the cabin tomorrow afternoon "if we can go now"
Thanks for the concerns !"

Good to hear you're safe and somewhat "sound". We had some storms blow through the OH valley this morning also. My storm door off the bedroom blew open and the umbrella by the pool blew out of the stand and was upside down, but I weathered through just fine.

Glad you're safe, Turbs.

We saw pictures posted on Facebook by some friends from Brooklyn, IA. Some serious flooding.

Enjoy the weekend at the cabin if you can.
