    Thanks. The CN looked decent. It looked like there was one washout near town, but the rest just needed to be cleaned from the trees.

    Thanks for taking the helecopter ride. Great photos. Great looking helicopter. Shows why we were not able to get railcars to north Omah this week. We had to string a hose about 200 feet across the field/swamp to get material to run our facility. ground water is still coming under the parking lot.

    Yes, I just took them on Monday. Its still bad, but with the flood gates closed, any big rain becomes another big flood inside the levee.
