The same thing is happening in North Dakota right now. With the Missouri river being at record levels, many of the dikes and berms built years ago
aren't sufficient to hold back the water. Too, with the high winds we have been having, the wave action wreaks havoc with them.
My husband's company, along with a couple of other companies all got together and decided to help their fellow man a couple of days ago, giving up
their time with family, and in many cases, sleep, to help folks out. My husband in particular, worked a full day (12+ hours), drove 3+ hours to Minot,
ND,worked another 12 hours,(overnight) and made the long trip home to our normal work site. The companies donated the equipment necessary, the
materials necessary and the hours necessary to complete the project. The same thing is going on in Bismarck, ND, also on the Missouri river.
This doesn't benefit the companies involved. It's just the community banding together to save everyone's butts.
Hi-5 to those who have chosen to contribute to the solution!! It's nice to know that our northern plains values still hold true.
