The Real deal. Please read.

This flooding thing is getting out of hand. I realize that Iowa and Wisconsin had huge floods last spring and the Hurricane Katrina did havoc to New Orleans but this river flooding is a big deal in Fargo. There have been BUS loads of people coming from all over ND, MN, SD and even WI to help save the city of Fargo and its sister city across the river Moorhead.

I like to stay on top of the situation and if it weren't for my snow removal business and lambing I'd be up there with my dad helping sandbag. I have so many friends and family that live in this city I ask for your prayers for their safety and their property is saved.

I am proud to be a Northern Midwesterner where no matter your race, religion or sex, people of all walks of life come together when its important and it make me get emotional every time I think of it. UGH i'm a big softy.

Garrett, I will be saying prayers for your friends and city. I'm in a prayerful state right now, so I've added it to my list.

Hugs,
Laura

This whole world needs more people like you. Never apologize for the fact that you care for other people whether you know them or not.

The people of the flood are added to me list, too.

I too am praying for everyone in the area. I know only too well how powerful prayer is. They are flowing.

And congratulations on all those beautiful lambs - ok, come on, Snow Cloud!

Our volcano blew up this morning while I was out doing chores and milking...I washed the truck hood so I could see if we get any ashfall this time...crossing fingers we get a little of that free fertilizer!

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
