Check AFW Late Thursday early Friday for photos from the flooding.Â Whomever doesn’t like the Indiana weather, certainly had a choice of everything this past couple of weeks.Â We’ve had everything.Â From warm to extreme cold, thunderstorms and driving rain and hail, a 2 inch snowfall one morning that was gone by dawn to some of the thickest fog we’ve seen in years.Â Everything was extreme – and now add the flooding.Â Keep those displaced and affected by the flooding in your prayers.Â If you’re able, get out and sandbag.Â If nothing else, donate to the local American Red Cross chapter or Salvation Army.Â Both of these agencies are out in force helping wherever they are able.Â I know from personal experience the good these agencies do.Â In the July 2003 flooding, the house my sister and I shared was located within feet of the St. Mary’s River.Â The support we received from the Red Cross and Salvation Army was great.Â Support them!
